Lucky tuna saves soldier by Murray Scougall

“A British soldier attacked by insurgents in Basra escaped with his life – thanks to a tuna sandwich and a Radio.

“Lance Corporal Anthony Nugent (22) was part of a routine patrol in the war zone last week when militia men began firing at them.

“They got out of the ambush safely – but it was only afterwards that Anthony realised what a piece of good luck he’d had.

“OBLITERATED

“Back at base he opened his rucksack and saw the tuna sandwich he’d been keeping there had be obliterated.

“On 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.”


Could a cookhouse egg banjo have saved the radio?

Well done that sarnie, no linky, the Sunday Post (Scots paper) website is shoite and doesn’t have it.

BTW Tony Nugent is with 1 Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment.

If it was a Cookhouse steak sandwich it would have stopped the bullet! :D

"Lance Corporal Mark Harding, from Wigton, was also part of the eight-strong Corunna company which came under attack."

And if Gordon has his way that will be the norm.

If tuna is pointy at both ends and thicker in the middle, how come the cans are all the same size?

Frog you make a point for up-armouring all our vehicles on the cheap, be careful the Govmint will have you working for them yet.

I understand from the interweb that Tesco Value tuna retails at 29p per can, while John West's is a whopping 99p a can. Given this would be a MOD procurement, your tuna would be sourced from the lowest bidder...

Damn, this is in CAs. No chance to make comments about soldiers and smelling of fish.

Oops, too late.

Ooops, yes this is CAs, can we move this thread to the QMs and get some intense technical discussion on the PFs of different tuna species. I understand the Japanese are even now researching the protection factor on Dolphin...
