Members of a British MiTT teach Iraqi soldiers helicopter drills near Basrah city
For many of the soldiers it was the first time on a helicopter
Canon EOS 400D Sigma 18-200EX 18mm 1/1600 @ f3.5 ISO 800 - (i won't lie, this was a mistake, my nose/cheeck has a habit of hitting the ISO button and setting it one up or down. it was surposed to be at 400 )
I'm not actually employed as a photographer in the army, although i have looked a little into transferring. as far as i know though you may be correct in one manor, in that you almost definitely have to have been in the army a little while already, weather or not you have to have been promoted to a Junior NCO rank before you can transfer i couldn't say. All i know is that the trade is part of the Royal Logistics Corps (RLC), the training course is around 1 year long, there are fairly few spaces and promotion is slow. however if its something you enjoy then theres no substitute and very few other jobs which offer such wide opportunities to take great photo's!
Hold on chaps, Leftenant hasnt finished his tea yet! sory mate couldnt hel myself. Great picture, even if the ISO got bumped down a notch, and man i wish i could get my hands on that L85 hes holding, such a well built gun, as far as i know.
