Default SA Navy Marine

Hi Alex or anyone else....

I thought you might like this pic...apparently taken on the border but showing a SA Navy Marine. What I find interesting is that besides his Kielick Anchor, he has a Company badge above it. (If my mind serves me right this one was HQ Company ?)

I did not know that the Navy wore these, not sure what colour the Navy would have worn. I know ours as Infantry were Green, Black and a Yellow combination. 31 Battalion (Omega Bushmen Battalion) wore Black and White combos.

Can we have some clarification on these.


(Why would you use a night scope during the day is anyone's guess...maybe that is why the Navy should remain on the sea and leave the land fighting to the Infantry!)
