British army training attack using plastic light sabres
According to the blurb its a training exercise, but what on earth are they training for? being hit with nerf bats?
British soldiers arrive to take part in a joint training operation with Iraqi army soldiers at al-Shuaiba military base in the southern city of Basra,
27 November 2007.
British troops are focusing on providing specialist backup and training to the Iraqi security forces, patrolling Iraq's border with Iran to prevent
the smuggling of arms and giving support to the economic regeneration of the Basra region. AFP PHOTO/ESSAM AL-SUDANI (Photo credit should read ESSAM

Here is another photo of British army training techniques, this time how to look invisible when hiding under a plastic shield. Maybe this is a
