    The point in having them learn to defuse the explosive blind is to build a confidence in their abilities so they won't freeze when the time comes to defuse a real explosive device

    Combat does NOT stop at night and the need for light discipline is essential. Learning to defuse in the "dark" is very important.

    Funny, the flat brimmed boaters on table I imagine fit post Victorian England. The wide brimmed straw hats above I just can't see worn by English. Felt or woolen sure.
    But what do I know.
    Certainly Queen E likes stylish hats. My Mom would always say "she'll pick-a-dilly"

    Maybe each one of those guys has a different size head. They pass a new made hat around until it fits somebody who then marks the size and puts it in the storage place above his head or on the table in front of him.

    One time while I was in Spain near the country of Gibraltar I stopped at this one smaller village to visit their beach it happened to be fishing day though. Over in a cove the people of the town had hauled their nets out by boat the previous day and were in the process of hauling them back to shore. This scene reminds me of how they were doing it. Almost every able bodied person was helping to drag the long laden nets to shore Later they cut the fish into strips and hung the strips on fences walls lines almost everywhere that the sun shown on them to dry the strips of fish. so the practice of yesteryear still in used in modern times
