We did another Navy SEAL photo-shoot at this years War & Peace show, this time the whole team got involved. SEAL missions were typically shorter than a SOG mission, often being an overnight ambush, hence the amount of equipment carried was lighter with an emphasis on ammunition. A few things elements of equipment stand out as being different to US issue or used equipment.
- The variety of uniforms worn, Tiger Stripe, ERDLS, Levi Big "E" jeans, Snap Vest and a modified SEAL float coat (the genuine item in poplin ERDL)
- The wide use of weapons used from a Stoner LMG through to a Remington Shotgun (an actual Vietnam bringback)
- The Montagnard emroidered headband with the lettering Viet "Nam" War, an example can be seen of pictures of Navy SEAL Daryl Young
The team prepare for the upcoming mission, a raid on a suspected enemy weapons cache
