RAF Regt to commission painting of 'The Battle of Bastion'

As above, those cheeky monkeys in blue are commissioning an oil painting to celebrate their brave victory against the Taleban in the recent attack onto the camp. Truly, they know no shame.
I think it'll be jolly nice, Biggles swooping down out of the sky eight Brownings blazing as he cuts the murderous Taliban down then off for tea and medals.

The men of Stalingrad would be in awe of the odds faced fearlessly by the SRDG. Gawd bless em.
Sadly not a wind up. Announced in mess meeting. I wonder if it will include the recently abandoned OP that was discovered 300m from the perimeter. You'd have thought that might be in their ptl area.
