......so reads a headline on page 2 of todays Torygraph! "An SAS soldier was ordered to surrender his penknife before boarding an RAF flight to Afghanistan, despite being allowed to keep his gun. The father of the soldier now serving in the south of the country, said his son had to give up the knife at RAF Brize Norton, which follows civil aviation rules. 'They confisticated his penknife but ignored the gun. It seems a strange set of priorities.'"
