Triumph for British forces in Boy's Own-style Kajaki mission - Times Online

Great job, lads! It must feel great to be able to actively help people this way. Keep up the good fight and keep the forces of barbarism at bay while the locals advance from the stone age.

Triumph for British forces in Boy's Own-style Kajaki mission - Times Online: "It was a task of epic proportions,inspiring comparisons with Commando magazine, Mad Max, the Battle of Arnhem in 1944 and the relief of the Siege of Mafeking in 1900.

The mission was to take 220 tonnes of turbine and other equipment, worth millions of pounds, across 100 miles of some of the most hostile and heavily mined territory in Afghanistan.

At the climax of the Taleban’s fighting season.

Without anyone noticing."
