I may have been Walted, and if not, this may be too sensitive. Mods may wish to watch replies in case any journos are twitching. I was chatting to a mate from my reg. reserve call up (2003 -4) and we got onto the subject of the medics who mobilized with us. Once we'd got away from the usual stuff - the lady Lt's exceptional chest, the g-g-g-gorgeous nurses etc - we got on to the stories from Gulf 2 and the aftermath that the medics told us. Is it true that various TA medics were required to stand guard over sensitive installations with orders to shoot to kill? I personally find it hard to believe, but looking back the lads who told us so were not the type to do silly wind ups. Just curious.
