If i were a guru I would post pics too!!

But since I'm not a guru; anybody else ??!

I think FALs in action would be a great photo thread.

These were the first pictures I have posted. I used Tinypic hosting. Took me a few trys before I got anything posted. Not very good at posting pictures.

What's up with all the tactical shorts?
Link Posted: 11/9/2005 4:15:31 AM EDT
They wear the shorts because it is most likely bloody hot where they are at. I think shorts were standard fare for the Brits. Take a look at some of the WW2 north Africa photos of the Brits in action. Not sure if they are still allowed or not.

Those are Rhodesians, not Brits... and they are most likely Selous Scouts.

Because Rhodesia was founded by an Englishman.
We export McDonalds; the Brits export those snappy shorts.
