Media ain't particularly choosy - it's only a story to them. And getting the word 'commando' in there sounds pretty macho, whereas XYZ Signal Regiment means sod all.

RIP guys

The names of the victims have been promulgated through the CoC from DInt. I am not sure what the public statement will be as of yet so all I can advise is that you ask your units for the details which should be available.

A terrible loss for all units and corps involved. RIP.

A soldier stood at the pearly gate,
His face was scarred and old.
He stood before the man of fate
For admission to the fold

'What have you done,' St Peter asked,
'To gain admission here?'
'Ive been a soldier, sir,' he said,
'For many and many a year.'

The pearly gate swung open wide
As Peter touched the bell.
'Inside', he said, 'and choose your harp.
You've had your share of hell.'

rest easy mate

Some dirt managed to get into my eyes whilst reading that.

Have they released the names yet? I'm out of the loop now so don't get this info until it is on the news. I hate the wait and worry though.
