    Yeah.. I was only there two years ago.. 5th trip to de leb. I haven't heard it being called shamrock just 2-45
    UNP 2-45 has been Camp Shamrock since it was taken over by the 106 Inf BN in 2012 from the French after the move out of 6-5. It's a rarely used name now with everyone just calling it 2-45.

    If you were there two years ago you would have seen the sign (now replaced with an IRISHPOLBATT sign) beside the unloading bay saying 'Welcome To Camp Shamrock'.

      Like I said, I haven't heard it being referred to Shamrock just 2-45. I was there the trip before the POLs arrived. 114 BN

        Then you would have seen the sign beside the unloading bay erected for Higgins' visit.

            • Nice to see the IFAK and Ballistic glasses finally on issue. Looks like the Mingy men were busy knocking up subdued versions of the new RECCE Qual badge. (AFAIK the only issued version is the full colour one for the SD's which is being worn by qualified personnel pending AI A9 Amendment.Incidentally It will be interesting to see the inevitable "Cavalry scout" Qual badge the Raccoons come up with!!)

              Gotta question the logic of storing Waterproofs in a drybag. Just more needless weight. Ounces equal pounds!!

              "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.
