QDG in 'Apocalypse Now' Euphrates river assault

A Pooled report from the BBC:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4049883.stm

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.

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.

Leaders of Men. One and all. :cry:
