Pleased to see that the RAF have won the Afghanistan Hajj contract. Doubtless they will be providing airframes for all manner of pilgrimages hereinafter as this in fact a 'humanitarian' thing and not something that the avarage Afghan was prepared to pay $1000 for. Apparently, a Government Minister said something along the lines of "...and the aircraft were spare and in the area." Now there's one for the crabs. Reassuring to know that there will be nothing in Soldier or any other in-house journal about it next month.
