    A Pooled report from the BBC:


    QDG provided armoured support to Iraqi and US troops assaulting houses believed to be hiding insurgents.

    Today's 'Interesting Military Fact You'd Never Have Guessed' award goes to the splendidly-monikered Maj Jasper de Quincy, for this gem: "Using night cover increases the element of surprise."

    Good skills by all concerned.
  2. An example of the professional standards that we expect from the best small army in the world.
    PS the Indian Army has more Gurkhas then the Brit Army has man power.
  3. PPS The Ukrainian army has more men than we do!
  4. "a joint operation in reverse"

    WTF? 8O

  7. Another Top Quote:

    "On Saturday, Black Watch soldiers went into villages on the western bank of the river to check the area and search houses and villagers in preparation for Sunday morning's operation.

    They were met with suspicion and fear but no overt hostility"

    Just like Warminster, then.
