Which means that if the Taliban tactics are to get in close to our troops so it makes it difficult to use air power we need more troops to counter this.

One British soldier, who witnessed the death, said he believed Wigley was killed by an American plane.


"It was the A-10. I saw it. I was standing five feet away," said the soldier, who cannot be identified because he was not permitted to speak on the record about the incident, pending a formal investigation.
Surely not again...

Gents,

I am sure the mods will back me up here - can we PLEASE not speculate on the circumstances surrounding Marine Wigley's death until an official report has been published, I'm sure friends and family would not wish undue casting of opinions that are not verified.

geordie it isn't Arrse members who are speculating on the circumstances. The story is in the public domain and that is why I posted it. I expected a lot of Arrse members to read it but not too many to comment.
We would be waiting a long time if we had to hang on for official reports and there certainly isn't a single Arrse member who would post a comment that would offend the good name of Marine Wigley or upset his friends and family.

It's under a BOI , therefore as per other subjects on Arrse concerning matters under investigation of this type, including Courts-Martial , this thread is locked until investigations are concluded.

I am also very very surprised this information is in the public domain already.
