Update on Afghan:
2 YORKs have been there for a few months now- as we all know- and will be coming home in December.
Initially, it was just training other troops and defending bases, however, recently the British Army has been uploading photos of Soldiers patrolling Kabul on their official Instagram page '@britisharmy'.
I just thought that it was worth mentioning being that it seems impossible to find news about combat.
Rather than unloading weapons from ships and subs that are being decommissioned or going in for repair, why not just blast the lot off at Afghanistan?
After all, the stuff has a "use by date" and I'd rather it didn't go to waste. Same with aircraft, couple of spare bombs / cruise missiles and a few rounds of 20mm? quick detour and drop the lot on Afghanistan. Extra practice and don't have to worry about landing weights.
