Many combat photos over the past century have in fact been taken during training exercises.
Think about it, what kind of crazy photographer would actually place themselves in front of
their own side with their back to the enemy.

I took this photo while lying under a Canadian truck after shots were heard. I was trying
for a picture of one the Canadians pointing to where he thought the shots were coming from
but the auto-focus on the camera captured a blade of grass in front of the lens in exquisite detail instead.
After I sorted out the auto-focus I took this picture of some of the soldiers at their stand-to
positions. The very sharp-eyed will spot that the soldier with the light machine gun under
the tailgate of the truck is wearing a British helmet. He was the driver for the British officer
who was acting as a Nato liaison with the Canadian combat engineers.
