Luck of the Irish saved Afghan patrol
Michael Evans in Sangin
A foot patrol of British soldiers recounted the moment that they survived an attack by a suicide bomber only to run into an ambush by the Taleban as they picked themselves up after the blast.

“It's the luck of the Irish,” said Sergeant Paul Harrison, 27, from Liverpool, who survived the attack along with the rest of his patrol from the 1st Battalion, The Royal Irish Regiment.

The incident took place on the outskirts of Sangin, the northern Helmand town where two years ago British paratroopers held out with a platoon of about 30 soldiers against a resurgent Taleban, which attacked its position in the district centre with small arms, mortar attacks and machinegun fire.

Not to be trite but the luck of the Irish saved me last night.

Was behind the bar mixing drinks for a bunch of idiots who couldn't tell the difference between a Vodka and a Guinness.

This particular chick never came to her senses until this morning when she woke up and called me Todd.

Nobody. And I mean nobody has ever called me Todd.

So happens that she is married to a Todd.
