Below [Nov.2013]: (Left) Spot the hide in the woodland morass (it's actually set at about 10 o'clock behind the small fir tree near the centre of picture) and, right, the exposed entrance of another hide using DPM groundsheet as the roof layer. The slide-in entrance is essentially the exposed black hole towards bottom right of picture.
Below [Nov.2013]: Exposed hide with earth-coloured CamoTek lining among upturned tree roots. Branches in f/ground supported masking layers of woodland litter and debris to make the hide virtually invisible.
Below [Nov.2013]: Fire preparations - excellent featherstick on the left which should catch sparks or take light easily. Right, stacking featherstick wood to dry close to the fire's dry-line.
Below [Nov.2013]: Left, a GTAS method. To right, various signalling options (also has GPS and compass pictured over at LHS)
Below, the construction of a discreet mini-hangi... It's not actually designed as a covert means of cooking but there isn't much of a footprint...
Below: Strips of meat ready for preservation in a 'smoker'... and a fish being readied for cooking over a fire.
Below: Parachute gores doubling up as survival shelter (left) and basher / hammock (right). Below centre, GTAS.
And then a number of demonstration evasion and general SERE shelters... Immed. below, external view of the hide (left), entrance (right).
Below: Hide hollowed out at the back of a tree stump...
And then a shelter virtually invisible from the track.... and a general shelter tucked away in the undergrowth...
