Photo of the Day

The tipline

A reader emails:

Hey WO,

Saw your pic of the day and thought you might like this one from the Waiouru training area about 4 years ago before 1RNZIR Mortars was disbanded. The photo was taken by a Vehicle Mechanic/EIR tech Sgt Heath Palatchie who is also an amazing amateur photographer. Enjoy

Keep up the good work!

    shame about the battalions and the army in general.
    loved the support company aspect, too;
    HMG, Mortars, Recon, Snipers, Sigs ,Aslt pioneers.
    would have much rather seen something like Landrovers and UH60 for the army.
