Standard issue kit

Michael Yon is an American freelance journalist, currently embedded with British troops in Helmand.

I know the boys out there don't have enough helicopters, but from the look of Yon's photographs, there aren't even enough desert uniforms to go round. I mean, we've only been out there for eight years... What is going on out there?

Take a look.

Bish, unlike the Americans, British solders are allowed far more freedom to customise their kit for maximum tactical effect. It should be remembered that most of the fighting occurs in the green vegetation either side of the river, hence many soldiers choice of jungle cam. I have heard no complaints about the supply of uniforms.
