James who is a Captain from the United Kingdom's Cavalry sent in this fascinating photo with the following note:

Hi Jake,

I've been a big fan of Jake's Rolex World Magazine for ages.

I'm an Officer in the British army in a unit called the Household Cavalry. I was recently on a fairly eventful and action packed Operational Tour to Helmand Province in Afghanistan.

I took a photo of my Oyster Perpetual Day Date, silver striped face, with a black webbing strap. I thought that it looked quite smart. Anyway, a great watch, I've worn it not-stop for the last five years, and it has seen some hard hits. Assault courses, ambushes, fire-fights.

I also own an 18k yellow gold Submariner–needless to say, I don't wear that one in the army, shame, I think it would make quite an amusing photo.

Keep up the good work with the site.

Best Regards,

Captain James XXXXX
The Household Cavalry
United Kingdom
