    They're pretty common everywhere, think they're starting to lose popularity as they are like the Burberry of tattoos.

    to record what goes on around him on and off operations, i imagine.

    for those who think "wow they look like a rag tag bunch of unprofessional soldiers..."

    well, i'd like to see them pick a fight with a few squaddies. I dont want to start a flame war here and im not trying to say that im right and everyone else is wrong, but I still and always will believe that the British Army is the best trained in the world.

    Im also seriously considering applying to the RE as an electrician. Serve the country, help the boys, get an education, and take on life experiences that not many (including myself) would understand unless they were right there at the time. its a big decision to make though... :/

    Thanks to all for posting the pics, its a great thread!
