    Heheh, although I always wondered why urban warfare used woodland camouflage. What, do you act like a tree, and they won't see you? ;)

    I had a similar experience once though. I was sent to the middle east and they didn't have desert camies for me. Woodland camies in the desert is a little ridiculous, you stand out like a sore thumb! So I quipped that I would hold my arms up and act like a cactus!

    No it works perfectly - at least until a dog comes walking up the street.

    Yeah, the entire first roto of the PPCLI (Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry) in Afghanistan had to wear woodland camo, because the new desert uniforms weren't ready yet! :rolleyes:
    They were finally ready for the second roto boys, but the first group stood out like retards!

    With a name like Princess Patricia's Light Infantry, sounds like they should be wearing pink uniforms! ;) I am sure they are good soldiers, but they need to requisition a new moniker.

    Being Navy, we often laugh at it too! :lol:
    But honestly, let me tell ya. Those boys are no wimps! They're tough as nails, and more than a little nuts! :shock:

    And they love nothing more than to rip a new arse for Navy slobs who make fun of their regiment!
    Made that mistake once. Never again. Well, at least not within earshot of any of 'em. :-"

    Beats the Hell outta me. Funny name for an infantry regiment, though!

    Okay, I won't keep harping on about these guys, but here's a bit of 'em.:

    Princess Patricia of Connaught, for whom the regiment is named. She died in 1974.
