Sorry mate, I will try to do better...but I am afraid that I still have thousands of pics stored away on my HD without any explanations. For many of them I won't be able to remember what they show :-(

(Y) Okay that was excellent mate...thank you!! Very interesting but I do have some Q's mate:
do not wear the "Centre-Europe" camo but US BDUs in tiger stripe camo. Why is that??? Just to stand out against the French forces or is there some purpose to that?
NEXT Q: I have to ask, what is going on with the chap roped up on the pole?? I'm not sure if that good or bad...... ??

Well I would have to guess, most probably to stand out, to make them different, special!?!

The chap roped on the pole is part of a gruelling test. The guy on the pole simulates a wounded comrade, the other trainees have to evacuate him across a jungle obstacle course. At the end of the course the pole has to be raised vertically. The aim Is to test the candidates ability to work as a team. Have a look at 3:30.
