The British Army's Household Cavalry engaged with social media over Christmas weekend by teasing followers on Twitter with a little puzzle. You're in a forest, and you're surrounded by soldiers. The soldiers are keeping you safe, they're not attacking you. But they are hiding, and they will not show themselves. Can you see them?
Here’s a Christmas Day teaser for you.— Household Cavalry (@HCMRegt) December 25, 2017
This picture was taken back in July on Salisbury plain and will test your powers of observation.
Can you spot 6 of our camouflaged soldiers in the Wood?
All will be revealed on Boxing Day
Happy Christmas and happy hunting!
Am I crazy, or is that a bunch of trees? Why can't they just come out and stand around the campfire with me? It seems like no one can see them:
If you can see them, they all failed in their mission...— Luc A.F. de Medts (@LucDeMedts) December 27, 2017
So the Household Cavalry made it a little "easier."
Sorry, guys, that's not much better.
Then on Boxing Day, the soldiers were revealed! Or they stepped out from behind the tree obscuring them, at least.
Okay, that was a fun game, but here is a relevant question:
let’s be fair, no.2 was hiding behind a big bush. I could be wearing a pink neon jumpsuit and I’d still be invisible behind that 😂— James Dennan (@james_dennan) December 28, 2017
Some of these guys are great at camo, and some are just great at standing behind an object larger than them. Either way, I'm even more terrified of the woods than I was before. Thanks, Household Cavalry!
