Some interesting photos of British forces during the Cold War era can be found here http://coldwarwarriors.proboards.com...al-photographs
The forum itself seems to have fallen into disuse but there's still some good fodder for gaming to be found there.
The Northern Ireland images are particularly good and while the Falklands section is good, many of the photos are ones that have been seen in newspapers/TV etc. etc. over the years (so nothing particularly new there...)
And the last section titled "Pics from book" suffers from the poster not keeping his image posting site up to date, none of the images show up anymore.

While some photos have been censored, others haven't and could be given the pencil shading treatment. I was particularly interested to see the images from the sub-forum titled "Old Skool SF". There's two photos of a particular Austrian rifle from the late 1970s that are incredibly intriguing to me.

I'm guessing the AUG is one from a local unit, possibly in the Middle east?

Given the look of the background and the relationship between the UK and this nation, I'm guessing Oman?
