  1. I got this sad report off the 1rtr site apologies if it has been posted elsewhere

    From the Regt:
    On Friday 09 Feb 07, 2 Soldiers of the Royal Tank Regt; Sgt Derek McDonald (Deek) and Cpl Simon Risdale (Si), were very seriously injured by Indirect Fire at Basra Palace. Deek from the 1st Royal Tank Regt on attachment to the 2nd Royal Tank Regt, received immediate treatment in theatre and has now been flown to the UK where his treatment continues. Deek's wife is with him as are the thoughts of every member of the Regt past and present. Although his condition reamains serious he is responding well to treatment. Si also received treatment in theatre and was flown back to Germany where he is undergoing further treatment and is also reported as doing well. As the situation improves I will keep you all informed.
