Just watched the Tonight with Trevor MacDonald program on ITV about treatment of soldiers returning from Iraq. One of the guys on the program - Jason Garrett an ex REME VM used to be the life and soul of his fitter section, but seeing him on TV tonight he looked like a shadow of his former self. Jay was one of a CRRARV crew sent out to recover a Challenger 2 that had thrown both tracks on a patrol into Basra. The recovery crew had to carry out the job under constant small arms and RPG fire. They spent somewhere between 5 and 7 hours in contact trying to get the CR2 out of trouble. Jay was in the comds hatch giving covering fire for the rech mech and tank crew while they tried to sort out the problem. It saddens me to see him like that. He was a bloody good man to have close by. I hope he gets back on track soon. Best wishes to him and his family.
