How Royal Anglians killed 1,000 Taliban!
One MILLION rounds fired,1,028 Taliban killed,nine men killed in action and 135 wounded in a six-month tour of duty.Those figures say it all,that is real WAR fighting!
Captain John McDermid killed in Afghanistan!
When you send the boys into battle,
Send them if you must.
But before you make them go there,
Make sure the reasons are just.
If you think there are reasons for going,
And the reasons are worth all the strife,
If you think you can pay for the losses,
Think – it’s not you who will pay with your life.
Think of the wives who become widows.
Think of the Mums who loose sons.
Think of the fatherless children,
Who are left to be raised by their mums.
It’s not you who will sit in you kitchen,
Feeling the loss on your own.
Struggling to think of an answer to,
“Mum, when is Dad coming home”.
It’s not you who will say to your princess,
After the planes taxis in,
‘Your daddy won’t walk off to meet you,
He’s lying inside a coffin’.
Think when you have your state dinner,
Talking of war, sipping wine.
Neither you nor the other state leaders,
Are sat in the firing line.
If the cause is a just one we’ll back you.
With great pride for our country we’ll fight.
But make sure you know what you’re doing,
And think ‘Is it right? Is it right?’

A bad day out for these insurgents!
Gays should be tortured and hanged, says Iranian minister meeting British MPs!
Read this For Fuck sake!-And these animals want to go Nuclear?-Don't think so!
Growing suicide toll among troops!
Read this It is appalling and a national disgrace how the government has turned its back on our troops suffering with Post Traumatic Stress from the horrors they've witnessed in the service of their country.Regretfully only the tip of the iceberg of this problem has been touched on and in the years to come,more and more of our service personnel will come forward and admit they have a problem once the stigma of combat stress has been removed.At the moment serving soldiers risk an end to their career if diagnosed with PTSD,more needs to be done to ease their burden and help NOT hinder them!
And closer to home for me,the 14,000 reservists and Territorial Army soldiers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and have been abandoned on their return to civilian life,thrown out on the rubbish tip,no longer needed and ignored,the government not even bothering to record how many are suffering with combat stress because in the eyes of Whitehall,they no longer matter!
SAS legend's bravo to hero!
Read this L/Cpl Craig Lundberg has given up his sight in the service of this country.Let's hope his sacrifice was not made in vain.His courage is truly humbling to read.
British soldier killed in Afghanistan on Wednesday 14 November!
It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that a soldier serving with 2nd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment has been killed today, Wednesday 14th November, in southern Afghanistan

Government ban wounded British Iraq veteran from the Cenotaph!
"The Government would not let Jamie join the parade at the Cenotaph because they said it was for veterans only, though I strongly believe they just didn’t want the embarrassment of injured soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan on show!"
Scipio says: "For veterans only?"-Who do they think this wounded Rifleman is if not a Veteran?-Every service man or woman who has had the GUTS to enlist in the British Armed forces and served in the defence of this country is a veteran!-I'd like to meet the bureaucratic Whitehall cretin who made this lunatic decision and show him just what another able bodied Rifle "Veteran" thinks of him!-How dare they treat this wounded hero in this disgraceful and insulting way!Rifleman Jamie Cooper should have LED the parade,not have been banned from it!Remembrance Sunday is even more relevant now than ever before with British soldiers fighting and dieing in Iraq and Afghanistan and THOUSANDS getting wounded in the service of this country.
I wish the Royal Green Jacket association had been told of this Illegal ban,we would have been PROUD and HONOURED to have him parade with us at the Cenotaph!

Last post to a good mate
It is with great sadness that I announce the death of Colin Cope,ex Corporal in the 2nd Battalion the Royal Green Jackets who I had the privilege to serve with and considered a good friend,who was killed by an IED at 0700 on Saturday 10th November in Iraq whilst working for a private security company.He was due to come home in a couple of weeks.He was an excellent soldier and a good man and it was an honour to know him.Colin leaves behind his wife,Colete and three children.He will be greatly missed.

A Soldier's Eyes
To look into a soldiers eyes, the window to their soul
Look out from the inside of their mind and see horrors never told
You say we are just killers, its not that plain you see
Take a walk inside my boots, and see what I have seen
Many innocent lives taken, and soldiers there were some
Giving their lives freely to get the job done
The last cold stare of death, we see in our buddies eyes
They fought for all your freedom, this is why we die
Some wonder why we fight to protect the nation, and maybe lose our life
Ask this question to a soldier, the answers in his eyes
Always we will be here waiting, the call we wont deny
We'll always fight for freedom, never asking why
We'll go away to far off lands, leaving our loved ones behind
Many times we are alone, several times inside
Open the windows to our souls, see the tears we hide
Secrets we cannot keep, are in a soldiers eyes
Mine victims to return to the frontline!
The wives who worry and wait for the call they hope will never come!
Read this Our armed forces need our support now more than ever before!

Lance Corporal Jake Alderton of 36 Engineer Regiment killed in Afghanistan!
You, with your neat picket fence and freshly mown lawn.
Where only the occasional daisy pokes through.
Sedately content you survey your domain.
While I, ignored by the passing thrall, I sit on this dusty plain
My withered limbs say it all, too sick to move I await Kismet.
As far as the eye can see, caught in the dying sun’s rays
The glint and glitter of the death that surrounds me
Thousands of miles away you decide my fate.
‘Tis not gold that’s a lying, but the brass casing’s
Left in pitiful piles from the lead that’s been flying
Too scared to close my eyes should I not wake.
The sky fills with death while the ground trembles
No trace they’ll find of my insignificant bones
Ramadan’s done, ‘Tis the time of Christ.
All this while you reach for your morning coffee.
As I lay dying on the road to Kandahar

Wounded Royal Green Jacket gets 'insulting' £57,000!
Read this An absolute disgrace and an insult to a brave wounded Rifleman!-We are hearing about the shabby treatment our wounded soldiers are getting from our ungrateful government more and more.It is appalling and sickening to see a BRITISH HERO treated in this offhand way!This clearly demonstrates the contempt and indifference that Gormless Brownose and his Left wing,tree hugging Politburo have for our armed forces!
The New LIEbour government are not worthy of the loyalty or respect of our servicemen who are daily fighting in the most extreme and difficult circumstances,understrength,under-equipped and underpaid!-The very least the country can do for our troops is to guarantee they will be properly looked after and cared for if they are wounded on OUR behalf.How must the soldiers on the front line be feeling when they hear of the appalling treatment of our wounded?-Verbally abused and insulted in overcrowded civilian hospital wards,denied proper treatment and respect because the government scrapped ALL our military hospitals to save money!-Thrown out onto the rubbish tip with a pittance of compensation and a meagre pension(if you are lucky) as soon as the MoD no longer needs you.Having to struggle to make ends meet because the paltry pension you received is not enough to live on and in far too many cases ending up homeless,sleeping in doorways and on park benches because you don't qualify for benefits or council housing because you were too busy fighting for your country to get on the housing lists while ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS,who have NEVER given anything to this country let alone an ARM or a LEG or their SIGHT are given free housing at the drop of a hat by our politically correct,European Union Lapdog,Insult of a government!
Equipment that could have saved life of 19-year-old soldier arrived too late!
Not a surprise!-In 2004 on my Iraq tour we never had enough "ECM" to go around and what we did have kept breaking down!We used to go out on a regular basis with minimal or no ECM cover at all,luckily no-one was killed but it was down to luck and nothing else,no thanks to the penny pincher's in Whitehall who couldn't be arsed to give us the kit we needed!I won't even start on about our lack of weapons,radios or armoured vehicles,enough has been said about that disgraceful fact already,however the situation has improved gradually since then with better wagons,like the "Bulldog" and the "Cougar",the new improved "Bowman" radio system and better body armour but there's still a long way to go until our troops have all the kit they need.The Government is still writing cheques it can't cash by committing our armed forces to fighting two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan without sufficient equipment to do the job and is putting our troops lives at risk needlessly all to save a few pounds!

Feted as Heroes, Hated as Zeroes -Americans get heroes welcomes, Brits get abuse!
Read this The ungrateful Scumbags who do this should be forced to attend every British military funeral and taken to Hedley Court to meet the HUNDREDS of wounded British service personnel who have lost limbs and been mutilated serving THEIR country!It makes me so angry for spineless,gutless,worms who have never had the BALLS to stand up and be counted and pick up a rifle in the defence of their country when we are at WAR to slag down and BETRAY the very same British servicemen who are DAILY risking their lives and are DIEING and getting hideously wounded in great big bloody batches so that these COWARDS can exercise their right to free speech without censure or fear!

Soldier wounded in Iraq is told to leave his Army home within 30 days!
Read this This is a DISGRACE!How dare our UNGRATEFUL and UNWORTHY joke of a government treat this WOUNDED BRITISH HERO in this CALLOUS and DISGUSTING way!!It makes me want to puke!-Gormless Brownose and his Lap dog Politburo don't deserve to even lick this brave man's boots!How our UNELECTED Spineless Scottish traitor "Prime Minister" can even look at himself in the mirror every day without feeling shame and guilt at the way his left wing,politically correct,incompetent,sleazy,corrupt insult of a government has treated our armed forces and our wounded heroes is beyond me!Wounded service personnel and their families are thrown out onto the street without a second thought while ILLEGAL immigrants are given council houses and FULL benefits not five minutes after getting off the Banana boat-Is that justice?
