    Tony,

    For their own protection. Service personnel wear camouflage for a reason akin to a 'sore thumb'.

          Just blew snot out my nostrils trying not to laugh out loud.




          Incidentally, if camouflage worked then it wouldn't matter if the military wore it in the street rather than civvies; can't remember how many times I've pointed out soldiers in the street to my air cadet eldest daughter.

            It is supposed to work on the battlefield. Are you deliberately obtuse or, just transparent ?

              Maybe he's wearing camouflage?

                I mention it because it makes daughter laugh and, as John said, in the gear they stick out like a sore thumb (however that strange phrase really works). But then again they did have to stop wearing uniform because the IRA took an interest in them.

                John, what about those who are LGBT soldiers? Should they keep an even lower profile now?

                  Back in the 1990's squaddies had to be in civvies rather than uniform when out and about in the UK. Desert boots, jeans, t-shirt, fleece and short haircut...great camouflage.

                    Didn't look too out of place around those bars in Soho, eh?

                      Whatever works to help keep them alive.

                                Now, if Bronski Beat inadvertently made themselves a target for terrorism that would be fine with me...

                                          Thank you. I realise my education is not what it should be. I thought that it could be some exotic vegetable.
