31 Squadron take on 31,000-mile Afghan challenge

Ministry of Defence said:
During their current deployment to Afghanistan, the RAF's 31 Squadron are aiming to raise £31,000 for charity by running, cycling or rowing 31,000 miles (50,000km).

I would be more impressed if they concentrated on operations.

Why are they wearing high viz belts in the gym?
Is there much chance of being knocked down?
Maybe I am biased, but I think this is a good effort by all those involved with the money going to worthy causes too.
It's a spectacular effort but the point remains that these people should have work to do. I am well aware that this is being done in their 'down time' but it used to grip me that we were pulling a minimum of a 16 hour day and you couldn't get hold of who you need to back in BSN as they were stood down. Front line troops aren't stood down until the tour ends so I'm firmly in the belief that people in BSN should be grafting just the same. Anyway, rant over.
