Aye, Blow the barstewards out of the water and machinegun the liferafts. japanese style.



Agree with Jimbo tho. The MoD should be making sure this positive news appears in the newspapers. With all the doom and gloom the papers are peddaling regarding afghan etc, some positive military results would be a good thing to read.
