  5. Even on a normal thread that is a sh1t attempt. show some respect ffs.

  6. Capt. Martin Driver was following a well trodden path by soldiers of 4PARA (and indeed many other TA regiments) by serving his country while at university, at a time when too many of his student contemporaries would have been engaged in a nihilist lifestyle.

    It is a testament to his time at 4PARA that his family refer to him as their "Airborne Viking".

    I offer my condolences to his family, friends and brothers in arms. The Vikings have lost a fine soldier; even by their high standards. Neither they nor 4PARA will forget him, and his loss will strengthen their resolve in times to come.
