Dope Pictures – “Ghillie” Snipers, 1944

Today I`d like to share two pictures that caught my attention:

“The Queen and Princess Elizabeth talk to a camouflaged sniper during a tour of Airborne forces, 19 May 1944” (click to enlarge)
The-Queen-and-Princess-Elizabeth

“Two snipers of the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion wear their “ghillie” suits during an inspection by King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Elizabeth in Salisbury Plain, England. 17 May 1944”
Retro-Snipers

These pics are uber-dope and show almost modern, up-to-date ghillies back in the day!
SO COOL !!! 🙂
