The number of internet users worldwide will soon reach the 5-billion mark. Our world has never been so connected. Great photos can spread globally in a matter of minutes, but the story and the necessary context sometimes gets left behind. Not in TFB’s Photo Of The Day, we will always accompany the images with a background and credits to the maker. Today we are in Operation Mazurka, where we see a Royal Australian Navy sailor taking part in a weapons practice with an F88 Austeyr on the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt.
Here’s the caption from the Royal Australian Navy:
Royal Australian Navy sailor Leading Seaman Maritime Logistics – Supply Chain Submarines Stephen Grieve, is deployed to the Sinai on Operation MAZURKA as a member of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO).
The MFO is a non-UN organisation established in 1981 to supervise the implementation of the security provisions of the Egyptian-Israeli Treaty of Peace.
