Rory's snaps.

Rory has provided what photos he has from his military days. The majority of service personnel don't tend to bother to take photos as their service life is mostly daily grind and work, when it isn't, things are hectic and the last thing on their minds is pictures. The pictures he has provided are a fairly typical potpurri of subjects.
