    All this on the say so of a few, why, it was a war situation and odd things happen there.
    they have been trying to "placate" the whole nation for years.

    One of the soldiers amongst the accused won the VC for his efforts.
    One of his accusers claims he should also have been awarded the same but was not.
    Read into that what you will.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Further thought, do the 'Bleedin Hearts' never learn, look a the mental damage they did to returned Viet Nam Vets. What the pollies and top brass are doing now will mentally scar all of the returned forces and others from Afghanistan forever.

    #44 Not only the conscripts themselves but to their wives and families . A stigma that none of them deserved in fact just the opposite. As to the accusation about VCs #43 most high ranking Awards go through a meticulous examination before being chosen , previous character and performances are also qualified , unless it is decided by political persons that an example be shown for moral boosting , this happened in certain theatres of conflict during the last WW which my father and uncles all told me at various times , that the regimental commander was told so many gongs were to be distributed to their men. Like most occasions like this the job of selection would be delegated down the line and would probably finish up at platoon level , so it was probably a sergeant that made the final decision. JS.

    hi colin
    the same here in the uk, these same limp wristed policy makers dont have the courage to defend a broken biscuit
    but send our troops into hostile situations, and then when they do their job they are trained to do, they are hounded for years to come by the very same weak limp wristed ****houses.
