Sky News carried a couple of live interviews with returning 3 Para Toms last night. The two i saw were with guys who had deployed to AFG straight out of the Depot. They came across very well indeed, confident, enthusiatic and a credit to the Bn. Especially the second guy who couldn't stop smiling, he even slipped out an F word and had the quick wit to apologise. Good PR.
Well done 16 Bde, hope there weren't too many sore heads this morning. Looking forward to more good PR as the guys continue to return.
Did anyone see the brief interview with the CO? I don't know him, and haven't seen previous pictures of him, but my reaction was that he looked absolutely 'drawn out' - not knackered physically, but he was the clearest illustration of the 'pressures of command' I've seen in some time...Not an ounce of spare flesh, and 'tight as a drum'... Good on all involved.
