    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!!

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

    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'.

    UNP 2-45 is the current Camp Shamrock since 2012. It's the fourth Camp Shamrock.
    6-52 is the Irish manned outpost.
