Shooting in a bunker





I took these photos of soldiers sheltering during an katyusha raid on the Israeli/Lebanon border. I'd jumped into the bunker to take cover myself and found 5 reservist soldiers who seemed pretty suprised to find this youngish looking english kid join them. They were in pretty good spirits, offering me food and drink, although they generally had little wish to be involved in the war. The soldier photographed at the top was a teacher with a family of his own to think about, and most of them had been in Lebanon during the war in the 1980's. They seemed a little less enthusiastic about the whole thing than their younger colleagues in the IDF.
