Whats a COB!?!?! (sorry if thats a bit air headed)
Combined Operating Base
It will be the one outside of Basra in Iraq.
BBC saying no British dead. A foriegn civi has been killed. RIP
One non UK civilain fatality, no other reported injuries. RIP.
Thanks for that Slacker
RIP and condolences.
First attack i've heard about for a while. hope its not the start of another wave of them.
Without wanting to sound like a pedant it's a "Contingency Operating Base" like a FOB but not "Forward". It's what Basra Airbase got called.
Rocket attacks still happen out there but it's much less frequent now thank goodness, more like once a month rather than 88 times a day at the height of TELIC 9/10.
1 Civilian killed at the COB, not British.
RIP either way.
Separate names with a comma.
