    Great picture Marc.
    If 1996, the batons should be L5A5. The L5A6 was introduced from July 1997.
    Notice that the soldier has an L104A1 baton gun, introduced around 1993/4.

    Some history on the vehicle in the background.

    Where’d you get the data on the vehicle? If it ended up at Witham it must be in private ownership now? Note that the backdrop in photo is the Saxon’s extending riot screens deployed (the screens fitted to the older Humber Pig gave that version of the vehicle the nickname ‘Flying Pig’).
    always looking for inert baton rounds and accessories - please message me if you have any for sale/trade.

    Just came across this photo that may be related to the last one I posted - firing batons from the screen of a 'Flying Pig':
