I saw the photo below while browsing the Defence Images website the other day, It's a fantastic picture, the LMG gunner giving a particuarly good "fuck off  Terry vibe". I thought it would be a good way to kick off a thread on here for posting some pictures of British armed forces on current ops.


Royal Marines from 42 Cdo pause in a ditch whilst on patrol in Afghanistan during cycle two of Operation Aabi Toorah.

Continuing the Falklands theme, that phot of a signaller from 45Cdo yomping to Port Stanley;


Recce Tp, 40Cdo out for a leisurely afteroon;


And to stop anyone saying I'm biased towards the Corps;

A panzer in Kosovo, probably stopped for a wet;


And a Para grav looking warry as fuuuuck;

The spectre "may" have been called in by UK forces for all we know.
And the Belgrano shows no UK forces in it just some fucked argies bobbing up and down, both are excellent pics
and representive of what happens when you fuck with HM forces.
I thought I'd add this as it's somewhat iconic and a brilliant image, almost like a cover from the commando comics.

The argies didn't even use flash suits or close bulkheads in an emergency, thats why it sunk so easily with so many burnt casualties.

Great pics keep them coming

I do have a favorite. Too big to post, so IŽll just give you a link. It has everything. A manly hairy chest and a cool tache.
