Another pocket patch from CCN, this time for RT Krait. The motto running through the scroll reads “ THE LORD GIVETH, THE CAR15 TAKETH AWAY”. This is a reference to the recon man’s favourite weapon, the Colt XM177E2 – often incorrectly called the CAR-15. This patch also gives an insight into the black humour that was found to necessary to get through the 1 year tour that a volunteer would spend at one of the Command and Control locations running missions.
