I have heard this story from two separate sources & cant help wondering if there is any truth in it. Essentially one UK base /op was being shot at practically every night by Iraqui sniper /s & there was nothing they could do to prevent it, as machine guns & heavier weapons weren't to be fired into civilian residential areas. About the 4th night the gate guard received a message from HQ that a visitor would be coming to the gate & was to be admitted without identity check. A bearded chap with an AK & large bergan was duly admitted,with a "posh" UK accent, went up to the roof, setup some equipment including a large sniper rifle, when the enemy fire commenced, he shot the enemy shooters, proceeded to pack up his equipment & left by the same gate, apparently without vehicle or companions. Is this in the same group as the RA OC's dog who got shot out of a gun. busload of nurses etc, or has someone got a source for this one?
