    That's a great photo you found Chuck6d... the "ARW Patrol Member" one. He is wearing the Irish Army Ranger tab "Fianˇglach" ("like the Fianna" (ancient legendary soldiers in Irish mythology)) on the the front of his hat as you can see.

    The ARW trained with the British SAS in the 1980s. I remember seeing reports of this in the Irish press at the time. Relations between the two armies are very cordial.

    cheers

    That was given to me by a friend who is serving in the unit. I'm still awaiting for more from him. I'll post them once I get them.

    The crack army force, the Ranger Wing, snatched a bronze medal in Bonn, Germany yesterday at the end of a four-day competition for special units from 41 countries around the world.

    The competition is a test of skills of special police and military units throughout the world and involves physical, mental, marksmanship and tactical skills.

    Their tasks included hostage dramas, obstacle crossing, and water disciplines on the river Rhine.

    The Rangers ended up as the leading military team in the event. They recorded one 3rd, four 4ths and never achieved less than 12th in any of the tests.

    Other competitors included the GEO from Spain, GSG9 from Germany, GOE Portugal, NOCS Italy (2nd), Royal Dutch Marines, and from South Africa, Sweden and the winning team Cobra from Austria.
    The competition has been held every four years since the early 1980s.

    No no no, you can't upload pictures from your computer directly but instead use a site like (example) "photobucket.com" to get them uploaded.

    Go raibh maith agat Stimpy for the article. What date was that? This year?

    Vacon? He asked for pictures of the Irish Army... not the Provisional Irish Republican Army. There is a difference.

    cheers

    "Army Rangers rescue 35 civilians held by renegade forces"... thanks moughoun. I had not seen that before.

    Here is an RTE report (use RealPlayer) on that:
