    The Swedes were getting them for their EU Battlegroup troops, so presumably we had to do likewise. Either that or it's (very) forward planning for Global Warming...

    Yes, I agree! I saw a Sheik gentleman and his wife passing through Stansted recently. His wife was in the full burqa and he had the full rig including a turban. The thought came to mind that it must have been interesting, or embarrassing, when they came to the security check point.

    I note the Cosaintoir pic has every headgear under the sun. Surely all should wear the beret for the duration of the mission.

    Sheiks don't wear Turbans. And the wives of sikhs don't wear Burquas either. So I guess it was just a random foreigner that you saw.

    They went six months after they were introduced.

    Haven't seen the picture in An Cosantóir yet, but I was watching the coverage on the news of the British Army's 'withdrawal' to Basra Airport, and it struck me once again that any kind of DPM seems unnecessary in that environment. A plain khaki would seem to be most suitable.

    I'm sure the Security Staff at Stansted are quite used to dealing with Muslim gentlemen and their wives.

    Sheik- elder of a tribe, lord, revered wise man, or Islamic scholar. They frequently wear head gear that looks like a turban. Their wives would frequently wear burkhas. The tulips are optional.

    How can people get a boner over a photo of a uniform? Why don't we just catch the people who start these stupid threads and club them to death from the ankles up.

    But since you asked here it is. Works well doesn't it.

    Why don't you just fork out the 2.50 it comes with a free connect, a mouse mat and an interesting book. Or do you reside in a third world country like Cork where there are no huts ...sorry shops.
