    I have read that some people don't like the new style No 2's FAD (Future Army Dress). I must say they look quite similar to the No2 dress we used to wear back in the 70's and I think they look OK.

    Royal Marines from Type 22 frigate HMS Cornwall are pictured during boarding drills from the ship's Pacific 24 seaboats. Using boarding ladders, the marines practiced the hazardous process of embarking and disembarking a ship at sea. The Royal Navy is often required to board and search vessels that are suspected of breaking international law, usually either piracy or narcotics smuggling.

    It's either RN or Afghan for me here at the moment - I need more good fresh stuff from the RAF to try to keep it balanced...

    There is someone from the RAF in NovocastrianUK's post, that's quite enough for a few weeks!

    Saw two Panther CLV's yesterday, amazing. They're huge, they were coming down the road and went past me, one green and the other in full camouflage.
