Marines injured in suicide bombing

Discussion in 'The Corps' started by watch_and_shoot, Dec 3, 2006.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 3 Lads from 45 Commando have been injured by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. One is in a serious condition but is improving and the other two are stable.

    It also seems that as the lads attempted to withdraw with the casualties, several civvy vehicles tried to block there path and the blokes had to open fire to disable them.

  2. The lads and their families are in my thoughts. All the best and get well soon.
     
  3. Speedy recovery fellas.
     
  4. Saw them yesterday. Two are quite chipper; the third not so good, but is recovering. Anything more I’d best let officialdom pass on, I think.
     
  5. Cheers for that mate. Pass on our best wishes to them if you get the chance.

  8. Good point mate - I was raging about this too, as it barely made the headlines last night or this morning.

    The headlines today on GMTV (in order of priority) were.
