Aren't in Afghanistan?!
I have an inability to suffer idots, so I'd normally post something that embodies the rage I would normally be feeling at reading a post like that. Unfortunately though, I'm so astounded at how ridculously wrong and uninformed you are Spiderbloke, that I can't even get angry.
Here's a brief rundown:
2001 - 40 Cdo are 1st British force into Afghanistan.
2002 - 45 Cdo deploy to Afghanistan.
Oct 2006 - 3 Cdo Bde relieve 16 AA Bde as main british presence in Afghanistan.
So yee see my uneducated fool, er, i mean friend, Royal were there at the start and in one form or another have been there ever since.
I hope the fact that you are both posting and reading this particular forum doesn't mean you are thinking of joining up. Only if you are, you may want to brush up on your current affairs somewhat. Just a thought.
