      I also liked the most. We were flying
      so "the whole bunch" on the big Sikorski helicopter.
      Without inner lining, without light, as in a ragged homeless
      the carriage. It was dumb at night, to be honest.

      You're right. This medal is "50 years of Victory in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945." Not Soviet, but Russian ...

      - The middle grandfather is wearing the "Black Watch" cockade - the Scottish Guard, the one on the left - "Rifle Brigade" or "Royal Green Jacket". This is, in general, the infantry ... so, most likely - the Western Front.

        Saigon, thank you very much for the information. I also puffed over their berets for a long time, since you brought some clarity. drinks The Scottish Guards adhere to their motto: "Nemo Me Impune Lacessit" - "No one will touch me with impunity."

      Actually there is, with combat experience from Iraq and Afghanistan. I’m not saying that we should shake with fear from her, but we don’t have to think that they don’t know how to fight at all. You can and should laugh with the fact that they are fighting in diapers, but only without hatred.

      And for this, it would be nice for us, following the example of mattresses, to revive the good Soviet traditions of military commissars.

      - And what was "minus"? The man correctly noted: the soldier has a "cleron" in his hands ... and it looks like it is a "jacket" - a cover on a helmet and a "unload" of a different color! It may very well be CCE.

    For local spiteful critics. The British have a very good army, with real combat experience, you yourself know where. And the fleet, although small, is a shadow of the Grand Fleet, but balanced enough in modern conditions. I would not want to meet them in battle. I am not an Englishman, I just try to look at things from the point of view of common sense.

    Well, pretty decent photos. There are genre ones, there are staged ones, but filmed, obviously not newcomers.

    Do you even imagine the difference, for example, in the British and Russian army, at least in quantity?
