This pic was taken a day after we blew up 15 IED's on one small road. Farmers used this road for cattle and one of the IED's blew up and killed 2 children. minutes after this picture was taken the whole town decided it was time to help fill in their road... the route was still not even clear, and the people who placed those IED's lived in or around that town. What a f*cking waste... I would love to see it now, even worse than when we got there. this guy in the pic decided it was safe to take his kids on the route, they never listened to us.

yea we knew it in Iraq back then, and these guys were in AFG in 2011 I think, maybe 2010. Multicam was just phasing in. sadly, that multi cam is fire retardent, and very thick, which is why they do not wear it in Garrison unless the unit is deploying. We were one of the first people to use Digi's in iraq. It became the norm in 2005.

And finally, it got pissed (maybe because I couldn't stop poking it :p ) and it decided to attack me haha. Fast little bugger!

Here's a pretty cool photo my friend took in Vegas this past weekend. We were there for his bachelor party, had 2 suites at the Luxor, bottle service 2 out of 3 nights and I'm still hurting from it I met Dan Majerle at the pool too lol... It was a crazy weekend to say the least. I'm the second from the right in the dark suit and tie.

Ahh my 15th Birthday was the best one I ever had. Watched the Vancouver Canucks lose against the Boston Bruins in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals and watched this city burn from a riot. Like from my apartment out in Surrey I was able to see all the smoke from downtown Vancouver. But I think this is a pretty cool picture during the riot.

During my last deployment to Afghanistan we had a Defence Photographer from a Media Unit deploy with us to take photos. There's a heap of them here's one of myself uncovering and control detonating an IED. As you can see I'm not wearing a Bomb Suit, it's because I'm not in an Engineer Regiment, I'm in a Special Operations Infantry Task Force so we weren't provided with much EOD equipment such as the Bomb Tech Bot, so had to get up right on top of the IED. So either way bomb suit or no bomb suit if that thing triggered I'd be f*cked.

Another cool photo not of me but taken of some guys from my unit, it wasn't during combat but during range practice.

Haha, I wouldn't know, but I'm pretty sure those type of beetles can be found all over the country. They seem to love palm trees because that's where I always see them...

They're Australian soldiers recognisable from the Multicam they're wearing which means they're from a Combat Role so Infantry, Engineers or Cavalry. Judging by the Bushmasters parked in the photo I'd say they're Cavalry. Not to mention many of the soldiers are carrying F88's and Minimi's.

The explosion was almost definitely made by placing a small explosive charge under some bags containing fuel, the charge forms a cloud of fuel droplets which are then ignited by magnesium.

Here's the same photo which clearly shows they're Australian, for some strange reason in the above posted photo the flags been blurred out purposely.
