IED Attack on British Patrol

#1
No casualties. If you look at the vehicles in the photo you can see why.


A British soldier gestures towards photographers to stay away from the scene of a bomb attack east of Basra, 550 km (340 miles) south of Baghdad, December 21, 2007. A suspected roadside bomb exploded next to a British military armoured vehicle east of Basra International Airport, where British forces in Iraq are based, but there were no casualties from the blast, a British military official said.

That's what I saw. Very surprised by the photos that no-one was hurt.

Soldier I think not, look at his shoulder - probably also explains the CWS on during the day - sloppy.

Covers fitted so it will work! Agreed about the tash though!

I can't see them, can anyone else?? If i could, I doubt if I would point them out in case they got targetted. :wink: :wink:

What tash? All I can see is a bit of misplaced mascara...

Looks like a particular, particular unit got targeted. More than likely because they are the least popular with the IED emplacement dudes.

They have been the bane of the IED nuts for some time, and have saved an awful lot of lives.

What a pillock. Loving the 10 blokes standing in a small bunch waiting for the explosion.
Do you think that they spell out the word "target" when viewed from the air?

The phrase 'tight grouping' seems to apply :roll:
