More fatalities in Afghanistan

Every time I read about losses in Afghanistan I remember John Reid’s belief that the mission could be completed without a shot being fired.

A good friend of mine serves with 148 Battery Royal Artillery, the unit which lost two of its soldiers yesterday, it is a small elite unit which has around 60 men at any one time. He reminded me that 148 have now lost five soldiers over the last few years, just one example of how much the armed forces are sacrificing.

My thoughts go to the family, friends and colleagues of these brave boys.
