Afghanistan




Another of our armed forces has been killed in Afghanistan.

The soldier, from the Household Cavalry Regiment, serving as part of the Brigade Reconnaissance Force, was killed yesterday afternoon (26 March). He died as a result of a grenade attack which occurred in an area 3 kms south of Sangin district centre, in Helmand Province. He was on a BRF foot patrol and was fatally wounded by a grenade thrown from behind a wall.

His death brings the death toll in this war to 277.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends. Spare a thought for them.

Notice Brown's speech just now with not a word about these deaths. Labour really are the most dreadful sh*ts.

No OR, I haven't been listening to the news. Was listening to Radio 4's Any Questions.

hi subrosa

Could you post this on the news network and link it back to your page? and any future posts on the war. I've been following your blog a long time and I know you cover most of the afghan war news . What do you think?

tell you what I'll do it I got a spare 20 mins. I'm doing an auction pledge tonight for help for heroes I think it's diabolical the way our armed forces are treated
