Well the B&W was not strictly military, it was something I spotted in the long grass one night. The heat is retained for some while but the image shows evidence that it was quite recent. I think I'll leave the description at that. Even so I suppose in some circumstances such evidence could of tactical value to an enemy.

Yes well done Richard I knew you would come up with some specialist knowledge :D

 

 

Although these extra items crept in unexpectedly, it important for us in the fields here to identify, defuse & dispose of them in a safe manner to avoid entanglement after the cooling off period.

 

From a strategic point of view it is worth remembering that a battalion will produce 4.5 cu ft of this type of material per day, that needs to be rendered safe. This is important from a health point of view, but operations of a covert nature could be jeopardised if proper attention is not paid to proper concealment or disposal of the stuff. I think I remember being told that the SAS carry their material with them rather leave any evidence of their prescence.

I knew we should have been worried where your mind was going, looking for the box set of Dads Army right now :)
