Military Picture of the Day

My brother the mad colonel and I were both delighted by this image of the day from the United Kingdom Department of Defence website:

Here's the DOD writeup (more info here):

400 members of The Black Watch, 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, got into the swing of Red Nose Day just before they deploy for their first tour in Afghanistan by adding a Comic Relief Red Nose to their famous Red Hackles. The soldiers were having their official photograph taken before they leave for their seven-month tour of the country when they decided to get into the spirit of Comic Relief and don Red Noses for their alternative official shot [Picture: Mark Owens]. Click here for more information on what the Armed Forces got up to for Comic Relief 2009.
