          The first picture is a picture of Irish troops. It's Irish DPM, with Irish rank markings, and the gunner clearly has a Steyr slung on his back

              That is the irish dpm except there is no tricolour on the guys left arm. The rank marking of the 3*on the left is also irish. I think i've seen that picture online somewhere captioned as irish.

                The very first issue of DPM shirts didn't have tricolours

                Also, the helmets are Izzies, not the British Mk6

                    British and Irish DPM are completely different patterns - Irish DPM is a standard amoeba pattern, while British DPM uses a brush stroke design. Also, Irish DPM is Green/Brown/Black/White, while British DPM is Green/Brown/Black/Yellow

                      I remember this pic from an other website (MP.net i think) and it said they were Irish and i've always thought they were.

                          The image was first seen on the Lockheed Martin Javelin website, and I think I posted a link to it on the ultraboard predecessor to IMO sometime in 2001! It's from the pre-purchase trials of the weapon.

                          So do I get a prize?
                          .
                          .
                          .
                          With 50,000 men getting killed a week, who's going to miss a pigeon?
