    I can't make sense of the yellow lettering on the back of their helmets. Anyone have a clue?

    There is no pictures of Naval Infantry battalion since it isn't formed yet. According to the MOD plans, this btn will be formed after construction of new Naval Base Detachment South.

    Now that's more like it! VOBs in from the water. Someone should put this on wikipedia, Hrvatski Vojnik allows it.

    I noticed something about the barrels of the VHSs. Besides the D and K models, I think there is at least one rifle with a barrel lenght in between. Specifically, on the last photo, combat swimmer on the right with NVG. Compare with other rifles on the photos. Am I just seeing things or?

    Honor Guard Battalion



    Officer of HGB Ivica Čukušić; together with his colleague Robert Erhardt, a member of the international expedition "Luke pit 2010", which was carried out in late July and early August. Their diving was part of a major goal: to reach deeper than the known depth of 1392 meters, recorded back in 1994.

    Diving in caves or cave diving is the culmination of diving skills and thus most dangerous dive. Specifically, diving in caves appear four aggravating conditions. These are the temperatures lower than 12 C, visibility (darkness) is less than 1 meter, current faster than 1m/s indoor pool.

    Luka's cave, the deepest in Croatia, has not been fully explored. Depth is more than 1400 meters, is located in the inhospitable terrain, and its bottom is filled with water. Descent into the abyss of its research and all its secrets requires expertise, knowledge, physical fitness, but also courage. The last feature is especially required of cavedivers, those who go to the bottom, under water, in the darkest, claustrophobic and often unknown areas. Most of us it is hard to imagine, but when talking to a lieutenant Ivica Ćukušić all together not look too hard.
    Believe me, it is difficult.

    Luke's Cave is named after Ozren Lukic - Luka, Croatian soldier who died in the war as a member of the Velebit mountain battalion.
