MOD Cutbacks

By lifesnapper  
Hi all, and welcome to my 'Silly Sunday Six'. Smile
I spotted this lot doing some secret training with their new cheaper form of weapons the other Day, at Leeds Castle. Hardly a secret location, but I think they where trying to fool us into believing that they where just playing silly buggers Smile
You will also see here that after the decommisioning of the Arkroyal, other modes of transport across the water, are being tried out. You will notice in one of the pictures, that it was almost a case of 'from Boat to Mote' as the two Army Women struggle to stay afloat Smile
Hope you enjoy this little set, and keep your eyes open for any more secret training plans that the Govenment have put in to force, while going about your every Day routine.
Thanks to all who voted on my 'Colourful Read' and I hope to have more Sunshine shots very soon.

All the best to all,

John Smile

Love V3, it reminds me of the Navy Lark - 'Left hand down a bit...'
(V4 and V5 duplicate I think).

MOD Cutbacks!! - Love the title and makes for an excellent Silly Sunday upload John. You struck lucky here capturing the military with their bow and arrows (all adds to the Leeds Castle feeling)!! Looking for a favourite Lifesnapper - Iím going for the beach assort on the enemy in V3 & V4. Well spotted and done, captures the fun of the day superbly.
