"We counted them all out............

..........and we counted them all back in"

This sort of reminds me of the BBC commentator's remarks during the early phases of the Falklands War in 1982.

What an impressive helmet. His face is very well protetcted, though he will only see his enemies that are in front of him. Not sure if his protection will help him against those that come from aside to attack him.
It's a pity you couldn't isolate your subjects from the visitors in the background. That would have made the photo more realistic. But nevertheless a very nice photo :-)

Can you imagine fighting a battle in a ton or armor? I like the detail you captured on the helmet...you have to wonder what the detail meant?
