Shot in the Dark

Discussion in 'Land Ops' started by The_Caretaker, Jan 5, 2011.

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. A squaddie in an OP sees a shape moving towards him through the bush so he opens fire and is relieved to hear a smack as his shot takes down the intruder. Going forward to investigate he comes across his platoon sergeant; on his back, groaning loudly and badly wounded. Seriously concerned the Tom gets onto his mobile to report the incident. ( More defence cuts – no radio.)
    Getting through to HQ he makes the following call.
    ‘Christ!’ he yells in a panic, ‘My platoon sergeant is dead. What can I do?’
    A calm voice at the other end replies, ‘Take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.’ There is a silence, and then a shot is heard.
    The Tom comes back on the phone: ‘OK, now what?’
