Thoughts go out to the families at this time


On Thursday, two British soldiers who went missing on Sunday, and are believed dead, were named as Sapper Luke Allsopp, 24, and Staff Sergeant Simon Cullingworth, 36, both from a bomb disposal unit of the Royal Engineers.
Hear Hear - Many condolences to them and best wishes to Families of all the guys out there but especially those from the Corps.

Lets hope everyone else comes home safely


Our thoughts go out to their family and friends.

Lets hope there's a swift and safe return for the rest of the chaps and chapesses out there.

Condolences to the families.  I hope they can take some comfort, no matter how small that the men died doing a good and necessary job.
I wholly understand the flavour of last post as this thread is generally read by Sappers and hence we are keen for any news about guys we may know.  However, I believe the UK EOD (incl RLC) is all under command 33 EOD.  Hence this is likely to have directly impacted mates and coleagues from the corps.

Their war role has become considerably more significant since GW1 and they play a key part in protecting infra and personnel from harm.  They do therefore play a vital but risky role and I echo the hope that the importance of the job does ease the pain for those who have lost loved ones.

Condolences to anyone touched by this such as family, friends, work mates and those who have to pass on the news.   Our thoughts are with you!
