  2. You posting this made me google up the dates of the two local lads killed in Iraq.
    One was 2005 Pte Phillip Hewett, and the SAS lad Sgt John Battersby killed in the Puma crash.
    It dosen't seem that long ago, but I expect it seems years to their NoK.
    RIP lads.
  3. I imagine there will be a post up tomorrow for another crash.
