Military and funny. The most eccentric form of the armies of the world
It is not customary to laugh at the military (it is customary to mock and scold them). But we will try to break this tradition and give you a reason to laugh at these amazing creatures.
Going to any army in the world, a person agrees in advance to obey someone else's will. And at the same time the will of the designers who came up with this strange shape for this army.
It is strange, but often soldiers of the guard of honor dress up in the most ridiculous form, guarding quite serious and even holy places. This is what the Greek Evzones, marching at the grave of the Unknown Soldier in Athens, look like. Only very cynical idiots can laugh at the memory of the fallen. But not all tourists can not laugh at the sight of these guys in a completely clown robes. Their movements are also very conducive.
And this is how gallant dog handlers from the K7 division with their four-legged subordinates look like. Trained Lebanese dogs will tear apart anyone who stands in their way. And if no one gets up, they will tear their own masters from sadness and lack of demand. Therefore, even at the military parade in Beirut, all the instructors are dressed in special anti-squat suits. Funny, but safe.
And this is the Indian border guards prancing on their elegant camels in the center of Delhi on the occasion of Republic Day. Of course, no one will ever recognize in them the frontier guards, including the violators of the Indian border. They will decide that a circus has arrived, and they will boldly go to violate the border. This is where they get caught. Hooray!
The dress uniform of the French army did not differ in particularly ridiculous details, so the designers urgently had to supplement it with such berets. Now you will not understand who goes - a Marine or a cook. Especially if the chef puts on combat awards, takes his chef machine and goes to the parade in honor of Bastille Day.
You would not believe, but these barefoot half-warriors half-women in torn skirts are also the most honorable of the sentries. Moreover, they keep a vigil at the tomb of the former President of Fiji Ratu Kamises Kapaivai Tuimakilai Mara. But even such a sad excuse did not make them change anything in their wardrobe. Well, at least wear mourning black skirts and no less mourning black slippers.
It is unlikely that someone will turn the language to call Haiti a peaceful country. Haitians will always find a reason for armed conflict, so their military uniforms are usually dirty, camouflage and in blood. But if it comes to the parade, the Haitians do not deny themselves the decorations. It is not surprising that the officer looks like a Christmas tree.
Each day of the week in Thailand corresponds to its own planet, its own deity, the animal of the deity and, most importantly, its color. And of course, every resident of Thailand knows the color corresponding to his birthday. And of course, he knows that there are seven days in a week. You probably know too. So do not be surprised that there are nine multicolored military in the photo. Two extra.
The wardrobe of the royal guards of South Korea is as similar to a military uniform as a little squirrel's costume is like a metropolitan's robe. Nevertheless, these courageous and harsh warriors belong to the elite units and are able to solve the most difficult combat tasks. They just don’t want to show it off, so they traditionally wear funny yellow robes, white underpants and high hats.
You already appreciated the berets, but now look at the aprons of the sappers of the French Foreign Legion. At the parade, they do not carry any load, but in the field they can accommodate ammunition and tools. There are other variants of combat aprons, which compete on consumer qualities with loose vests. In addition to the French, they are used by British paratroopers, the Royal Marine Corps, the South African army, and mountain rifle units of a number of countries.
The name of the capital of Côte d'Ivoire - Abidjan - in the Ebrie language means “cut leaves”. And they, in turn, symbolize the end of strife. Nevertheless, the country still has an army, and it is marching in a parade in front of the presidential palace. The original coloring allows soldiers to merge imperceptibly with a herd of denim zebras (if scientists ever bring out such a breed).
Even the photographer who shot the parade of the Iranian army in Tehran was not completely sure whether the Iranian army was in front of him. Admit it, it is very difficult to determine not only the rank, but also the branch of troops, by the Chinese Kalashnikov assault rifles and green garment production waste. But camouflage in the form of stormy vegetation helps a lot to find an Iranian soldier in the desert.
The Vatican does not have its own army. Therefore, even such a shrine as the Pope is guarded by the hired corps of the Swiss Guard, founded in the 16th century. Since Catholic guardsmen had no time to read fashionable army magazines, their form, developed by Michelangelo himself, had not changed for 400 years.
India and Pakistan
“The Evening Dawn Ceremony” is a complex highly artistic ritual performed by Pakistani and Indian border guards at the checkpoint in the city of Amritsar to the delight of tourists. It passes daily before sunset. Something like our changing the guard at the mausoleum, only even funnier.
So that you do not think that her army is sad people in yellow coats, we decided to show you the combat swimmers. In honor of the parade, they do not hide their faces under the mask and even took the tubes out of their mouths. The hardest thing is not to attack each other on the flippers.
