stop being a fanboy douchebag. if we are going to see this thread as a sticky, at the very least it could provide information and insight like the Original Picture of the day thread tries to.
Yeah way to go posting 7 stupid posts without pictures, and 4 of then in a row, twit.

I can't tell much about this except it's late ww1.
From what I've learned in this thread however, these are FUCKING CANADIAN LUMBERJACK COMMANDOS YEAH Canadian Pioneers. I don't know whether this is in Bosnia or somewhere else, but I sure do hope I do not compromise information concerning and operational context with this picture, I sure don't mean to blow up the operation in case it's still running. If so, the canadian government may send me a PM and I'll take the picture down.

Holy fuck, Sheik... anyway, though I always (maybe) try to be humble, I can never resist posting the picture of my great-grand uncle, who won the VC posthumously at Cambrai in 1917.



His citation reads: For repeated acts of most conspicuous bravery. He led his company in an attack and cleared 400 yards of trench. Though wounded, when the enemy attacked in superior numbers, he sprang out of the trench with eight men and met the attack in the open, killing many and taking six prisoners. For three hours after this, all other Officers having become casualties, he remained with his company, refusing to go to the dressing station, and repeatedly repelled bombing attacks. Later, when the enemy again attacked in superior numbers, he led his men to repel the attack and was mortally wounded. His heroism, when worn out and exhausted from loss of blood, inspired his men to hold out, though almost surrounded, till reinforcements arrived and dislodged the enemy.

Scenes from the Siege of Sarajevo.
And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

To keep this thread going, I don't have any stuff of Iceland in a war, but I do have a photo of two F4 Phantoms doing Patrol Over Iceland, and I suppose that will have to do :)

These guys don't like the smell of napalm in the morning, as they all look a bit afraid and confused.
