Excellent post keyboard, far to many deaths and so many of them so young. Some were only 19 years old, man that realy sucks.

Godbless every single one of them x

AMW it has ever been thus. I was been shot at on my 18th birthday. I don't care who you are, as a teenager you have no concept of what is good bad or indifferent. But I think that is part of the equation, get them when they are young.

This nation takes to much for granted and always has done with regard to there armed forces.

The trendy Liberal left despise them as I found out on may occassions. And there are a lot of them in the Government.

Scot Independent.
