Really cool pics. Does Grom just put on random shows for the public? :D

If some dick head from the Central Command wants to make some pix with one my nations most elite units - yeah :(
You don't see Delta Force making a show during the anniversary of Acid Gambit or the 22nd SAS during the anniversary of Princes Gate.
But it's the situation in Poland :(

No I can understand the reasoning behind it, I was asking because most of the Grom photos I see show them training in public (ie bus assaults, raids, etc).

Yes, but this one was first time public.
There were some, but only for officials and some media folks, like thode Boon mentioned.
The show itself was a kind of reenacting the orginal operation with modern weapons and cars. The WW2 one was conducted 26th march 1943 by soldiers of Home Army. They managed to save 25 prisoners from german convoy.

During Adm. Olsons visit GROM made a little "show and tell".
I'm no SOF expert but this is not the Quiet Professional way I would imagine.
The MoD always liked to bragg about this unit.
The good thing is that SOCOM will school our SOF commanders in the tactical and stratigic use of SOF, and maybe, finally a doctrine for Polish Warriors will rise.
Lets hope for the best.

Enjoy the pix:
