  2. Fair shout, his injuries would be my worst nightmare
  3. Not to sound to gruesome, perhaps if each of these soldiers produced a Christmas card with these photographs on the front, and sent them to each NEW LABOUR - NO SHAME MPs, and even Mr G. Brown.

    This, then might remind them what going to WAR on a LIE - causes.
    Lets not forget, what these brave soldiers have done for this arrogant government.

    Ord_Sgt RIP

    Tough break for the young lad. To have survived a direct hit to the chest by an RPG round is incredible.
  5. Cracking lad, I hope his future life is as full as can be.
  6. Top bloke, and a typical squaddie can do attitude..

    I could think of lots of others who would spend time complaining instead of turning the affair into something positive.
  7. I'll wager he don't forget the fckuer.wonder if he got a 'veterans' badge for it?.
  8. Oh aye & new car?.
  9. A brave lad. I have added to Craigs guestbook on his website to show my support. Injuries can be overcome with the support of true friends and family.

    They could be overcome somewhat quicker with better support from the government ...
  10. Forgive me if I've read that wrong but if thats a pish take mate it's a bit below the belt.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.
