    What can i say, one of my best mates. Rest In Peace Paul :poppy:. Paul was killed when a bomb struck their Land-Rover on Wednesday. He was the bravest, most genuine guy i have ever known. You will always be remembered by me and everyone who knew you Paul. Always a Rifleman. Always a freind.

    Sad news mate.
    Reminds me of that chat we had awhile back.

    Will you be able to get up to Wootton Bassett to see the cortege come through the High Street ?

    When ever I see a Herc or C17 flying over home towards Lyneham I wonder if it's carried the mortal remains of some poor Squaddie.

    Very sorry to read this Donnie. A friend of ours who was at our wedding was involved in this and is coming home this week. As yet I don't even know if he's injured, but am hoping for the best.
