Here’s today’s picture from The British Ministry of Defence Picture Gallery. Brigadier Jim Dutton of 3 Commando Brigade talks with a young Iraqi on a patrol in Umm Qasr. These are superb pictures and deserve a wider audience than they’ll get on this hidden-away British Ministry of Defence website. Click the pic for a screen size version, or the link above for more.
I will continue to try and post one a day for a while. If you like them, drop me a note from the feedback page, or just go and have a look at the collection for yourself.
Incidentally, it’s now ten days since we’ve heard from Raed but with the bombing of telephone exchanges we’ve been seeing, I doubt if restoring the internet in Baghdad is Iraqui priority number one.
