Hi all, I just wanted to share some memories from last summer’s refresher course which was held at Niinisalo drill area. The weather was hot but we got to wear the brand new M/05 camouflage suits which were comfortable enough, although an ‘old hand’ like me still prefers the old M/62 camo.
One of the officers in charge is my good mate, and allowed me to hang around as unofficial ‘combat cameraman’ after my part in the drill was finished.
Here’s a shot of two conscripts from Pori ambushing ‘friendly’ BMP-2 with dummy 66 KES 88 AT launcher (although the yellow stripe indicating a dummy weapon is missing and guy at the front has lost the blank adapter from his RK 95 assault rifle!).
