An Army marches on its stomach!

It’s true that an Army does march, work, train and fight on its stomach. This image was taken this morning of these soldiers waiting in the queue for their breakfast, the start of a very long days training.



About robgrimesphotography

Experienced and enthusiastic, I have a real passion for photography that I have gained over the years and that shines through in my pictures and my portfolio. I specialise in capturing those spontaneous moments that we otherwise could lose, either at your wedding or on a relaxed family shoot of your choice. I am always happy to talk about photography, so if you think I might be the right person to take your photographs then give me a ring to discuss your pictures, they are yours after all. Also a full time serving soldier in the Infantry in the British Army, but soon to be leaving the forces after Project Afghan finishes.

    Reminds me of the old days and all the pre-op deployment training! Nice work Rob!

  2. Well I bet your breakfast beats my bagel – but then again I think I am right in assuming that your day and the rest of these guys day is going to be a little bit more strenuous than mine as I figure lifting a rifle is slightly more calorie consuming than lifting a biro 😉

  3. I must admit to having my best ever breakfast on top of a hill top site in Bosnia in the middle of a flipping cold winter in ’94. Smoked haddock, scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms, toms and baked beans. Even more incredible it was all done in a 12×12 on a trailer stove! Army chefs get a slagging off but they are simply the best! (except my granny…)

    Keep up the images mucker,
