    I had to share these. The locals customise all their vehicles in a similar fashion. This is one of the more elaborate.

    Thanks.

    Tommi, the guy with the 'tache, is my fellow shift Corporal and proper friend. When you spend 7 days a week, 12 hour shifts, then live in the same room as one another you soon find out how well you get on...

    We go to the gym everyday and he is a lot stronger than me, yet 15Kg lighter. He is also a survival guru, a bit like Ray Mears with a better sense of humour. If there's anyone you'd want on your side when the going gets tough, it's our Tommi.

    He is a legend here in Kandahar and all the girls love him. We charge them to get photos of him. It's true!

    Haha.
    It's good to know that there is some enjoyment out there.
    Glad your back though, mate.
