Do the public know the extent of injuries ect in Afghanistan?

A friend of the family said this to me yesterday. Do we actually know the extent of injured soldiers in Afghanistan or do we just hear about the deaths of soldiers? I've found various articles on the web about it. But in all honesty I can't recall hearing the statistics on the mainstream news much, if at all. Or have I just missed it?

Apologies if this thread has already been covered.

Any help appreciated.

Hmmm lol. I can only apologise as this has caused some upset obviously. At twenty two years old without a degree in journalism under my belt. I think it'd be pretty hard for me to be a journalist. Bearing in mind it was a very genuine question from a friend of the family. Not "A friend of mine" as you wrongly quoted.:thumright:

Now do me a favour. Don't jump on somebody without knowing who the hell they are, calling them scum and whatever else. That's completely distasteful. That said, I understand the reason and hope there's no Hard feelings...=| Hopefully the lack of abusive language aimed back at you is enough for you to realise, I'm not a **** after all.

Hi Guys,

As the title above says; I'm interested in Joinging the RMP. I didn't leave school with required entry qualifications so I spent the last two years getting my math and English standards...

And as an ex-soldier here, shouldn't us 'public' know the full extent of the numbers and types of casualties in Afghanistan? I would've thought that would be in the interest of the armed services, though maybe not in the interest of the politicians who're meant to be supplying you guys with the correct equipment to do the job you've been assigned to do.

Last time I looked the lists were maybe a year or so behind. They didn't separate the "battlefield" injuries from others though just x amount of injuries per month

Yes...You found one of my other genuine posts. I fail to see what it's got to do with this though?:)

I'd like to add. I live in Ferryhill. It's a very old and scummy Pit village in the North East of England, about 5 Minutes from Durham. The Mods could confirm that via my IP address. Although, I'm sure they have much better things to do. The last time I seen any "journo scum" was when a local chap was ran down by two blokes in a stolen car. At any other time, they aren't welcome.

The shock of someone insisting i'm a journalist has definitely brightened up my day. So I thank you. :nod:

To the genuine posts in the thread. Thanks for the help and info. It confirmed what I was already thinking.

Cheers.

Alex.

Do me a favour and wind your ******* neck in. You come on here asking that sort of question with no one having a clue who you are, and expect everyone to give you the answer? Surely you are not that naive or stupid?

I guess I must be...I don't expect anybody to call me a "****" without knowing who I am. Surely that's not the way people go on? Maybe it is, Maybe it's not. But I sure as hell don't. Which is why I've refrained from sending any abuse back over.

With regards to everyone giving the answer. No I didn't. But I certainly didn't expect that. I expected some people to answer and those who aren't interested to pass the thread by.:thumright:

To the Mods;

My initial question has been answered. The thread can be deleted now if you see fit. I don't want the thread to give the wrong impression or come across as callous or cold. That wasn't my intention at all.

Apologies once again if this caused any offence,

Alex.
