That's the withdrawal without victory started, then.

Christ knows how the Vikings feel about the losses among their brothers in arms, with f#ckall to show for it but this.

Good, Silab is in an awful location. Only one vehicular route in and out, difficult to reinforce quickly and a nightmare to get out by air, because no flights in if there was any enemy activity in the area.

The Mercians were in situ when I was there, one of the best Regiments I've had the pleasure of working with.
