Since when has Coax been a 'Personal Weapon' ? My point was, perhaps too subtle; the MoD has said that as a result of Sgt Roberts PW malfunction he brought about his own death, ergo the fault lay at his door.
Thankyou fugly for your enlightening reply...........despite my years of membership I had indeed overlooked that particular point. That said with my many years of membership I have indeed had threads yanked before, all done with a polite explanation by PM. Now; I'm not ego centric but I do believe that I as others should be given an explanation as to why 5 minutes of their time has been binned or moved; most especially so when the matter is in the general interest of the usesrs of this board, Excluding those not actually deploying now or in the future etc.
I had to ask for an explanation, had a brief reply about two people complaining, and did not get an answer when I pointed out that the info was not only in the public domain, but actually somewhere on ARRSE.
Thank you Anya for your advice.....I'll bear it in mind! Incidentally I was a member of this site before the change over in 2003, so I do have an inkling. The whole point is a question was asked that someone deemed necessary to merge into a similar but not as pointed a thread.
