Royal Marines with 40 Commando, armed with a L129a1 Sharpshooter and a GPMG, on operations in Helmand Province. The Sharpshooter is fitted with a 6x48 ACOG scope that enables the user to engage targets out to 800 meters while a MOA RMR sight atop the ACOG scope allows for close quarters engagements. It also features back-up iron sights for use if the optical sights fail.
Shad Thames - just east of Tower Bridge, was the largest warehouse complex in the world during the Victorian era, but has now been re-imagined as hundreds of posh urban nests. The iron bridge gantries connected the riverside Butler's Wharf with adjoining warehouses. Coo! It looks like a scene from Oliver! And it is. Parts were filmed here, & Bill Sikes fell to his death from nearby 'Jacob's Island' at the eastern end.
