Easter on pa­trol

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Inside -

THAT LestWe­For­get thing doesn’t ap­ply only to his­tory. This week­end, as you moan about the hol­i­day traf­fic, think of our ser­vice­men and women in Afghanistan. While this Long Range Pa­trol Ve­hi­cle of the Aus­tralian spe­cial forces might come in handy here in civvy street, that grenade launcher and .50 cal ma­chine gun aren’t for show. Then there’s the ev­er­p­re­sent dan­ger of the Tal­iban’s road­side im­pro­vised ex­plo­sive de­vices (IEDs). All the best for Easter, Dig­gers. And we hope it’s a nice, peace­ful one, too.
