Scots Guards

Photo From: MikeDavies - Album: Military Photos--People/Scenes

Description: I took this picture in Sharjah, Oman in 1969 while serving with BTS (British Troops Sharjah). This was our garrison's Night Guard being inspected prior to going on duty. They are Scots Guards, and they were immaculate. Even so, you can see the Orderly Officer having a man's name taken for something slovenly with his kit. Bear in mind that there is nothing but desert or ocean for 500 miles in any direction, but the Brits still insist on being "on parade".
