Think this has slipped under most Arrser's radar but I've taken a quote from the following thread: http://www.arrse.co.uk/just-ta/171153-12-month-mobilisation-problems-3.html 'Well i didnt get my extension, however my tour has been cut short anyway, i fly back to the UK tomorrow after an IED blast has shattered my left leg and sharpnel to my upper right thigh. I thank all on arrse who gave me information from becoming a recruit to an operational soldier. I was lucky compared to the 3 other casualties. Thanks all hope to post something when im back in brum. ' The_Creature I doubt I could be so phlegmatic. Hope all concerned are back up and about ASAP.
