More British troops killed & wounded in Basra

The first sad loss for the QDG while in Iraq.

Speedy and full recovery for the injured.
Absolutely gutted. Literally just got home 2 hours ago from Basra - I would have been checking in as it happened. That takes the total deaths for my tour to 15. :(
My condolences to the families and speedy recovery to the Injured
Rest in Peace

Lest We Forget
Sincere condolencies to family, friends and the 1st Queens Dragoon Gaurds.

Glasses raised tonight, Godspeed fellas
Rest In Peace.

My sincere condolences to all those who mourn the loss of a loved one...

With you a part of me hath passed away;
For in the peopled forest of my mind
A tree made leafless by this wintry wind
Shall never don again its green array.
Chapel and fireside, country road and bay,
Have something of their friendliness resigned;
Another, if I would, I could not find,
And I am grown much older in a day.
But yet I treasure in my memory
Your gift of charity, and young hearts ease,
And the dear honour of your amity;
For these once mine, my life is rich with these.
And I scarce know which part may greater be,--
What I keep of you, or you rob from me.

George Santayana
