2 British Soldiers Killed in Basra - Thread of Condolence

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by babiesarm, Sep 28, 2004.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. News flash on the BBC website, no further information as yet.

    2 reported killed after an attack on a convoy.
     
  2. This from the MOD site:

    Two British soldiers died following the ambush of a military convoy south-west of Basrah on 28 September 2004. An armoured Land Rover was badly damaged, and as troops sought to extract the casualties, they came under small arms fire. Further details will be withheld until the soldiers' families have been informed.

    Terrible news.
     
  3. Condolances to the relatives. How many more before security is beefed up over there and we can get on with the job with out political interferance???
    :evil: :evil: :evil:
     
  4. Unbelieveable that ITN news could not manage to make this their main headline. Instead it came after the 'incredible breaking story' that Tony Blair is due to make a speech at his Party Conference in Brighton today.
     
  5. Rest in peace brave lads and sincere condolences to the families.
     
  6. Its a discrace. News channels do not care for iraq now.
     
  7. Oh God. Can't bear the thought of the next of kin being informed whilst Blair babbles
     
  8. Once again ,with great sadness and a mounting anger I type this.

    Condolences to the family , colleagues and friends of the fallen.

    How 'fitting' that such news can take second place behind a slime ball like Bliar. How many more?

    RIP.
     
  10. PTP,
    I second that. Very sad.
     
  11. It has already been said,

    condolences to all concerned
     
  12. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
    We will remember them.
