A real Land Rover
By christophersaul on May 11, 2008
Here's a 'real' Land Rover.
The photo was taken by Captain Alexander Allan of the Grenadier Guards, during deployment in Helmand, Afghanistan. My father recently bought this and one other photo at an exhibition in Chelsea Barracks in support of the army's benevolent fund.
The squad is known as an MIT - Mentoring and Instruction Team. Their role was to mentor and train the Afghan National Army.
(The scan has clipped off the chap on the left, but it's still worth posting!)
I'd love to have the chance to drive one of these as well as one of the famous 'Pink Panther' Land Rovers, the first military vehicles to be adapted for the desert.
