TA Assault Pioneer Cadre, Kirkwall, 1987

This was a mixture of local lads and boys from sooth who took part in a 2 week course of digging ditches and laying fancy barb wire fences if I remember correctly ! From when the local TA was still the 2nd 51st but already heading down the engineers direction. I love the way the TOS was worn uniquely to each individual !
