I'm loving Rolling Thunder's posts. Here's one of my favourites:

"Sniper Platoon with Support Company attached to Number 1 Company 1st Battalion The Irish Guards, take up positions Thursday April 3, 2002, to provide cover for Royal Engineers trying to extingush an oil well fire. The action came during a dawn raid by the Irish Guards on a university factory complex situated on the outskirts of Basra. British forces came under fire from small arms and mortars, and Lynx helicopter was fired at with a SAM missile."

It's not all Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace.......

Re: Guardian Angel

Amazing Pics. Wish all of the luck possible to bring every troop home alive after this "war" is done.
