Photo CB08-239.  The Signal badge Slouch Hat and SLR for Alex Young - Lest we forget.   Photo taken by Denis Hare (May 2008)

Note: The tradition of sticking rifles upside down into the ground with head gear is to honour the dead, as a temporary memorial to a fallen soldier, is a ‘modern trend’.  This practice originated with the introduction of tanks.  When a soldier fell during an advance his mate would pick up the rifle and stick it into the ground, by the bayonet as a marker to indicate to the tanks that a wounded or dead soldier lay there, this way the armoured vehicle would not accidentally run over the body.
