From todayâs Sunday Post Lucky tuna saves soldier by Murray Scougall âA British soldier attacked by insurgents in Basra escaped with his life â thanks to a tuna sandwich and a Radio. âLance Corporal Anthony Nugent (22) was part of a routine patrol in the war zone last week when militia men began firing at them. âThey got out of the ambush safely â but it was only afterwards that Anthony realised what a piece of good luck heâd had. âOBLITERATED âBack at base he opened his rucksack and saw the tuna sandwich heâd been keeping there had be obliterated. âOn closer examination he realised a bullet had gone through his rucksack, demolished his sandwich, been deflected by his radio and burst out the other side of the bag missing him by inches.â Could a cookhouse egg banjo have saved the radio? Well done that sarnie, no linky, the Sunday Post (Scots paper) website is shoite and doesnât have it. BTW Tony Nugent is with 1 Duke of Lancasterâs Regiment.
