Military Picture of the Week

Despite record snowstorms throughout Britain, it's good to see from this MOD Image of the Day that the British military has not lost its sense of humour. MP+

Troops from 16 Air Assault Brigade, the Army's premier rapid reaction force, based in Colchester, were back at work yesterday, Thursday 7 January 2010, despite the heavy snow. But during a morning coffee break, troops and civilian staff from the Brigade Headquarters took the opportunity to put some new recruits through their paces. These recruits took the form of maroon-bereted snowmen who stood guard outside the base. A brigade spokesmen said: "It is seldom the weather is good enough for the snowmen to train with us. They have worked hard, are very stoical and don’t seem to mind the cold." [Picture: Corporal Rupert Frere RLC, Crown Copyright/MOD 2010]
