RCMP A/Cmr Graham Muir (below, left) speaking with two colleagues on the
ground in Khandahar.
The two officers pictured above are seen wearing the CIVPOL tan tunic with their rank indicated by an epaulette rank slider, mid-chest.
They are both wearing black berets with the RCMP cap badge affixed. Many members in Kandahar when wearing their beret replaced the
cap badge with a collar badge, because of the weight. The berets were soon discarded for more practical ball caps or helmets.
