RMP with experience in Afghanistan and Iraq

Any SIB RMP lads on here with experience investigating deaths in Iraq or Afghanistan? I’m researching the practicalities of investigating deaths in theatre and wanted to get some first hand accounts of the challenges. It seems to me from the cases I’ve looked at that there were some unrealistic expectations on RMP to carry out their jobs in Iraq and Afghanistan. I get the impression that RMP were spread pretty thin on the ground and tied up with a huge range of other duties.

If you have the time I’d be really interested to hear about your experiences, I’m interested to know things like what facilities were available to carry out investigations? I know pathologists were a serious problem in Iraq, could you get access to pathologists?

Were there any facilities for forensic exams?

Interpreters when interviewing witnesses or suspects?

Work loads – did you have enough time to do your job properly?

Did you have relative independence or were you relying on other units for different things?

Were there cultural problems that made your life more difficult? E.g. burial customs in Iraq?

Have there been any major changes in the past few years to make things better/ give you more resources?

Any help greatly appreciated, cheers lads.

The cheque's in the post draft dodger. And as for desktop Commando paranoid and illiterate is a lethal combo. Any non-trolls with genuine insights or impressions would be helpful.

Perhaps you should do research in to a decent spell checker.
And your the numpty asking for help on this but don't tell us what it's for?
Research for BSc/MSc/PhD or for the Daily Mail, any of these could be the reason!!
Explain more and people may be willing to help or point you in the right direction.
 
Ah cool sorry. I'm just looking for some informal opinions really, but it's for a PhD in Law looking at practical problems with applying things like the human rights act to forces on active service/why it's stupid to hold RMP to the same standards as say a police officer in the UK in during peace time.
 
UK police officers can generally conduct their inquiries without fear of being blown up/shot at...
 
Although the Monkey's will be across, depends what time frame you are interested in, warfooting ..the second we tear across the border, where they will have a landrover and be on different types of duties, or when in sit'u and have a proper setup, with all the gear.

Sorry did you say informal opinions, I thought you said...
