Remember chaps, the airfield is as vital as the EFI.

That was how the last lot managed to get all those USMC Harriers burnt out wasn't it?

They're getting some help now, does that mean the RAF regt can't cope?

The Wing is augmented by soldiers from the 5th Contingent from the Tongan Defence Services, an Automated Sense and Warn detachment from 16 Regiment Royal Artillery and, more recently, soldiers from The Queen's Royal Lancers' A Squadron

Hmm, no mention that FP is now very firmly under the overall control of the Yanks, I believe? Something to do with a recent problemette involving USMC Harrriers (And, more pointedly, USMC fatalities).

Are you trying to suggest the USMC have not seen the funny side of the rockapes attempt at a Benny Hill sketch?

I'd be very surprised if that was the case but even if it had been the case at the time it wouldn't have made any difference - the FP response is coordinated by a combined, joint ops room.

Anyway, being under US led command in Afghanistan (and elsewhere) hasn't exactly reduced our bill in blood and treasure has it?

You believe totally incorrectly. Still, let's not let facts get in the way.
