Early AVGP refuelling with Jeep and 5/4. Looks like the soldier leaning against the 5/4 is trialling the British-styled camouflage, c1982.

Edit: I zoomed in, and it appears to be a AMF(L) deployment. Signage at the pumps is not E/F, and the fella with his back to the pump appears to have Brit DPM as well, which would make sense, as he also appears to be wearing a Union Flag on his right shoulder. I reckon this RP was manned by the Brits.

This looks like Norway - with the strike force deployment - in Jan/Feb of 1982.

Great photo.

The Huey though looks like it is painted as one of the HH-1Ns??

Is that jeep a 'CJ' series? I didn't know they were used by the Canadian Army and that 5/4 ton is a Dodge I take it?

The Jeep is a M38A1CDN and the 5/4 ton is a Chevrolet CK20903. The M38A1CDN Jeeps were used from 1953 until the mid-1980s and the Chevrolet 5/4 ton from the late 1970s until the mid-1990s.
