Don when did the move to the UAE happen and what was the reasoning for it. Seems strange to go to a place like the UAE.

Do have any idea who snaped it, or the source of it? It looks like something of a recruiting poster or from some marketing work. Not that I don't like it - quite the opposite, it's just to hmmm..:confused:

I say it's a 'Staged photo' In any Opex, only the craphat and Beret was worn. So it's just for the Photo, but we did haul in our luggages our Képis.

Don I was looking at some pics and noticed that a sappers Kepi differs from the normal Kepi Blanc, the strap on the sappers Kepi was golden yellowish while the others was a black one. Does the difference have any meaning behind it? Or is it just to differ the sappers from the rest?
