    SLRBoy -

    Sorry, but absolutely everything you say here is treated with utter contempt by all on this site. Time to switch LogIn ID again, perchance?

    The work to clear out the IPS in Basra has been going on for a long time. I'm not up to date with the latest machinations, but we can be pretty certain that we wouldn't have launched this without a bloody good idea of the outcome. Well done all round!
  10. Old Snowy,
    Never do time in N.I. then?
  11. Well done to our boys in Iraq!
  12. OldSnowy,
    check your P.M's.
