Army Boots

Still in formation, although without the owners.

What you see here are the boots of soldiers who are attending the Army Cadet School (Academy?). The boots were ‘parked’ in formation as they were performing Friday Prayer.

The boots were nifty aligned in front of the mosque, probably according to their group.

Notice the formation is in three column — with the group leader on the front-right position

I wonder how they avoid the boots mixed-up.

Apparently, they put their names, codes or numbers on their boots.

Iyus & Prayitno

Suddenly, inspection!

“Hmmmm, if I charge 200 rupiah for every pair of boots that is ‘parked’ here, how much money will I earn…?”
