Lumberjack Commandos

The most elite fighting force in the world. They go in Felling Axes and Crosscut Saws hot and run on nothing but flapjacks and pure testosterone. Trees of the world, prepare to meet your maker.

    Pioneers from The Royal Canadian Regiment a few years back, hence the beards.

    Kudos to John. If memory serves me correctly, this photo was taken by a photojournalist with the RCR battle group in Bosnia sometime in 1996….but please don’t quote me; I could be wrong.

    And is it my imagination, or do these pioneers look unhappy over the distinct lack of Tim Horton’s coffee in the immediate area?

    Cheers, Fanboy.

    It was actually 1RCR in Kosovo in 2000. When the pictures hit the media, the hammer came down about grooming standards in all of the Pioneer Plattons and we had to trim our beards. The beginning of the end……. It was only a few years later that they disbanded the pioneer platoons in our infantry battalions.
