First Gulf War - 20 years on

#1
My fellow Arrsers,

Next January will mark the 20th anniversary of the 1991 Gulf War - I was one of the RAF Officers shot down and captured during that conflict (I look forward to the obvious abuse!).

I've been asked by a current affairs TV programme and a national newspaper to make a film and write an article about the personal experiences of some of those involved.

I am particularly interested in hearing from someone in the thick of the action on the ground in 1991 and, rather more sadly, from someone who was injured. I'm trying to show some of the more personal aspects of the war including how lives were changed (for better or worse). As I won’t have time to pursue any press clearances, I rather think it will be for those of you who have left the services.

If you are interested, you can PM me or send an email to bloodbrotherswar@aol.co.uk – at this stage just send me a few basic details about who, what, where, and the sort of thing you saw or did.

As ever, thanks for your help.

cheers
John Nichol
