Sod that for a game of soldiers...
The failure to properly earth/bond a fuel tank to a generator was a factor in the death of a civilian contractor in SLB in 2004 (static caused spark & fuel explosion during filling) along with injuries to service personnel & destruction of mil vehicles. I think that was a KBR contract, but can't remember for certain.
In other words "You don't know"
Someone delete it then.
And funnily enough, something to do with fuel!!
Like all contractors, KBR have a tendency to do what is in the contract and no more.
The US Army is no better at writing/monitoring contracts than we are.
Sorry guys, but I think there's more to this. [dons tinfoil hat]
1 death is tragic, 2 is even more tragic and points at something going wrong, 3 deaths smacks of incompetence, but 12? Have they got any muslim contractors on the job?
Not anything new though.
Same happened to a young "18"years old R. Sigs lad just out of training in 82/83.
Stood in a shower in the Falklands and same accident happened.
Can't remember if the shower had been installed by by Sappers or Civies though.
A sad day indeed - R.I.P
