Deepest condolences to the friends and families. 16SR were/are almost finished with this tour and from my limited perspective they had done a good job. It is especially sad that this has happened so close to the end.
Incidents like this beg that question, what were Signallers doing on vehicle patrol in Kabul? Surely we are not so over manned that units are volunteering tradesmen to perform tasks for which they have not the full training or experience? Maybe I have the wrong perspective and all that âsolider-firstâ stuff they ban on about at CLM is true.
