More bad news, this time from Oman

A Scottish solider has died from heat-related injuries while training in Oman.
Corporal Peter Armour, from Glasgow, collapsed during a training run on 18 May and died nine days later.

The 26-year-old was serving with the Royal Corps of Signals as part of a regular deployment in Oman, unconnected to British operations in Iraq.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said Corporal Armour was on regular deployment in Oman.

"Corporal Armour was from Glasgow and married with one daughter," the spokesman added.

"The media are requested to respect the family's privacy at this very difficult time."

War Hero

such a waste agree with you adyf
Sh1tty day for the Army.

RIP mate....

Condolences to family, friends and colleagues of Corporal Armour.
I've known 44 degrees in a Shamel (hot wind) in Oman, not nice.
You don't sweat, well you do but you don't notice it, the wind wipps it away as it surfaces.
You need to be undercover or drink massive amounts of water.
RIP old soldier.
R.I.P matey.
