A marvellous image of a soldier on the march to complement my 'Fortunes of War' story at the Yahoo Group and the Review of the, now defunct, 'Guys in Uniform' Studio at the blog. This is a well built man who would grace any clothing but I love the way his sleeves are rolled up an extra inch or so to show of his biceps, the framing of his neck by the neatly arranged shirt and not least the meticulously deformed beret. Mangling headgear is something of an art form in the armed forces, transforming a mundane slightly ridiculous garment into one that pleases and smoulders with character.
Someone asked what country do these men fight for? (see comments).
The answer is Holland, their equivalent of the marines and if you search images you'll discover they are a splendid body of men (see below)
I surrender! That ringed cap on the end of his gun looks lethal!
