I am pleased that old Norm is free. However look at the risks taken to achieve that. I was livid when back in the 80's in Beruit John McCarthy & Jackie Mann elected to stay in Beruit after the FCO/MoD evacuated Brits from Beruit as they were told it was dangerous, my Dad was there as a Chinook crewman getting the Brits out. He remembers some Brits quaffing champagne from the bottle and laughing at those leaving and giving the fingers to the RAF. Some muppets elected stay on. The funny thing is that McCarthy & Mann were expats and never paid taxes. I am sick of idiots going overseas or not listening to the good wholesome advice of the Foreign Office or State Department. I would like to see the MOD Accounts Committee invoice some of these muppets for the AVGAS, Wages and Eqpt we use to get then out. Grrrrrrrrrrrr . Any other opinions boys ?
