The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From the BBC:

    This is terrible news and I hope that it does not indicate that the MoD has done nothing since the last incident when L/Cpl Craw of the A&SH died under suspiciously similar circumstances.

    Very sad news.

    Does appear to be a bit of a pattern emerging PVR. I wonder how many other incidents have occurred in which no injuries or fatalities have happened.

    I hope that the investigation finds out, and changes either the weapon or its user handling drills. I really hope it is not just written off as user error.
