I have no idea who this guy is but there’s a good story behind the picture (which I love, by the way – it captures the ordinary British squaddie brilliantly, there’s something quite eternal about this face). The photo is one of a series of British troops currently training here at Suffield, as taken by Steve Woods, a British army photographer who I met on the training area yesterday. “Woody” is a former British army infanteer and has an incredible eye for photography. There’s a link to his blog and more of his images here.
Woody was kind enough to take four shots of myself and a British chaplain colleague, Padre Alex Bennett, and I’ll post them here soon. Thanks, Woody.
