    To top it off, the pattern appears to be the first pattern Lithuanian camouflage used by the Iraqi 36 Commando.  If this is the case, it is the first time I have seen this type body armor in use with them.  The 36 Commando were involved in the fighting of the Second Battle of Fallujah (Op Phantom Fury and Operation Al-Fajr).  The date of the picture fits the dates of the Second Battle of Fallujah.
