Minty McGee, D Sqn HCR and A-10 friendly fire


If you've been here longer than the Brexit thread, you'll recall that we used to discuss military matters. Back in the day (03 in fact) a Guardian journalist Audrey Gillan embedded with D Sqn HCR for TELIC 1. She was also an ARRSE member (the eponymous Minty).

Anyway, she's recorded a podcast with the survivors of the "friendly fire" incident, and the accompanying article is above. Enjoy.
 
A shit storm for all involved, but particularly those on the receiving end. A colleague of mine was involved in the similar RRF incident in GW1, I'm convinced he's never really recovered.

Minty McGinty rather than McGee if memory serves but that was interesting. Cheers A-t-G.

This is the result of that A10 strike...
 
The lad who was shot in the buttocks with DU rounds, just how big was his bloody arse?
