was modelled on something shown to Poles by... Americans :)

Oh, I forgot, and by the British :)

National Gravel Eating day?

;D

They aren't eating gravel, they're just caught in a moment while doing something ;) But what you can see in the previous photo is just the beginning, they're going to spent at least a few days there. It's been taking place ever year in spring and autumn for the last 30 years:

@maf, nope, it doesn't have anything to do with land surveying - another photo hint :):

Riddle 1.

He got a sidearm and HK416 on the other side.

Riddle 2.

Selection to Grom in Bieszczady.

Riddle 3. What's the anniversary about?

Connected? Do you mean 11/09?

He got a sidearm

Maf already guessed this one :) But do you have any ideas which pistol this might be? I wanted to make it part of the riddle, but it was explained to me that one can't make out from this photo which pistol it is exactly (and I don't know the answer myself). Still, we can have some guesses, I suppose... :P

and HK416 on the other side.

Nice one, I didn't notice that he has something on the other side too lol I just focused on the pistol ;))

Selection to Grom in Bieszczady.

Yes, correct (the mountain part of selection)! Well, actually, only the last photo is from GROM selection, the rest is from selection for AGAT, but I used those only because there aren't that many photos from selection for GROM. So, you've guessed Riddle 2 - congrats! :)

Connected? Do you mean 11/09?

No, I just meant that the two photos/riddles are connected since there are soldiers from special forces on both of them, and, obviously, the GROM operator from Riddle 1 had to go through a selection.

So, what do you think happened for the first time 30 years ago (Riddle 3)? :)

which pistol this might be?

Cannot say. My guess is HK USP (one of those versions) or Glock 17 but it could be something else.

@Ironside, yeah, I was able to identify the holster only:

proshop.targetscreators.com/produkt/kabura-safariland-glock-17-als-coyote-fde-stx-tlr1-x300-optic-prawa/

But it can be used to carry different pistols (FN, Glock, SIG Sauer, Smith & Wesson and STI Intl Staccato), so it didn't help much :P

- that's exactly what the hint was about - the faces being blurred :)

They are Poland special forces that were created about 30 years ago.
They compare to the United States Navy Seals and are some very bad asses.
They are involved in Poland's covert operations that never happened as in Black Ops.
Very elite force.

But do you have any ideas which pistol this might be?

My guess it is a 9mm Wist 94 that is manufactured in Poland.
It is a very well crafted weapon.
If not then most likely a Military Colt 1911 .45 acp.

They are closer to the British SAS than to American Navy Seals.

This may be true as the Navy Seals are much more elite and secretive.

Nah they are more like NS.

The GROM are some of the toughest special forces on the planet.
Know in Poland as the "Bad Ass Boys".
The only difference is they don't make movies about them like they do the Navy Seals.
