Shot in the Dark


War Hero
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?’
