    that really is some shooting!! what is it with snipers these days, especially the brits

    good shooting
    I knew a simple soldier boy.....
    Who grinned at life in empty joy,
    Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
    And whistled early with the lark.

    In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
    With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
    He put a bullet through his brain.
    And no one spoke of him again.

    You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
    Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
    Sneak home and pray you'll never know
    The hell where youth and laughter go.

      have you a source that is'nt a rag for this- as maybe i'm a cynic but i have a hard time believing this (not that its not possible,) because the article is fairly short in detail, and its in the sun.....
      But there's no danger
      It's a professional career
      Though it could be arranged
      With just a word in Mr. Churchill's ear
      If you're out of luck you're out of work
      We could send you to johannesburg.

        Good shooting!!

        I hope this new record doesn't weigh too heavily on his conscience. He's done the uniform proud!

          The press will believe anything their told. Remember that guy who chaimed he was shot 4 times in the head in Iraq in 2003. It was on the front pages only later did we find out he was a liar.

            Was in the trainstation shop in Maynooth last week, on the newspaper rack side by side were the Star and the Mirror. One read "Gerry Died Broke" the other read "Gerry Leaves Fortune to Morah"

            What are we supposed to believe, when these lads spout shite and dont back it up in anyway other than 'an inside source' or somebody close to whoever.
            The Sun is in this class of rag. This kind of non specific vague story annoys me.

            If the lad in question really did do what he said he should be made a hero. Like that EOD lad who undid 8 IEDs similtaniously. Give him a DSM or some such.

              Remember this?


              Dont believe the press. Dont even believe the offical sources remember the Jessica Lynch bullshit the US Army came out with only she told the truth.

                      I saw that. However, I think there was one word different. One was "Gerry Died Broke" the other "Gerry Leaves Everything to Morah"

                        That was my point, which I'm not trying to be cavalier about. The poor guy has no doubt seen and done things that will scar him for life, in ways that many of us can't fathom and despite the lives he may have saved with his actions; he'll bare the brunt of all he has experienced on his conscience.

                        I am of course proud of what he's done in the service of his country and comrades, and I hope he lives not to regret his actions.

                        Well done that man!

                          your right the headline said 'everything' but the caption said gerry leaves fortune...

                          Anywho this is getting off topic- My apologies.

                          As for what S and S- its probably not an easy thing to have live with, fair play.

                            Was there a rep present from the Guinness book of Records?

                              How does he know it was 28 seconds

                              he hardly said to his spotter- start the stopwacth bang bang stop
                              Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
                              Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
                              The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
                              The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
                              The best lack all conviction, while the worst
                              Are full of passionate intensity.
