Soldiers skiing in the desert.

You couldn't make it up could you?

From the Telegraph's report of the inquiry into the Iraq War.
Col Power was particularly scathing about the supply chain. ... he said, “I know for a fact that there was one container full of skis in the desert.”
Maybe somebody in the MoD didn't have a good grasp of geography, which is why they also failed to provide enough desert boots!
