5th February

Up on super sanger at 0900, ‘BANG’, in C Company’s AO, a massive single explosion, then a massive fire fight. Then we saw a MERT coming in, not good.

At 1900 we got a brief that Sgt Mjr Beckett, sat on a pressure release IED, then he went to move off and…….he wouldn’t have known anything after that. They found his weapon 150m further south in a tree. Fuck me that’s horrid, I feel for his family back home, getting the worst news ever.
