Isn't the hospital going to move with the proposed draw down of troops in Iraq? I hear SLB will be closing.
It's supposed to be moving to the APOD and will draw down to a 25 bed facility. Not sure when it will actually move as it was supposed to have started in April.
Purely guess work here, but the last build lasted 2 yrs or so & cost god no's how much, looking around Shaibah it self there appears to be load of building work, so I guess they are in Shaibah for at least another 2 to 3 yrs plus
Go onto your Google earth and have a look at the work going on at the APOD. You will see camps going up, thats not for theatre expansion, and you will soon see camps coming down at SLB. The Hosp is one that will soon be down.
Your right the British are in Iraq for more years just not at SLB.
How do you find it on google earth...Yes I have tried Iraq before anyone replies but how can I locate Shaibah? I have tried the cords from Ventress but it doesnt seem to work.
If you click the "google earth comunity" bit on the left (its in a scroll down menu) you'l see that a bunch of people have put pins in it already. Thats how i found it.

The tents on the runway in 2003 were brilliant ;) We really don't know how lucky we were.....
You had tents? Hell, they'd run out of hessian by the time they dug the first latrines as I arrived.

Everything was al fresco!

Thank God for Lomotil!
