    Soldiers injured in Germany.

    Some of you may have heard in the news that 6 British soldiers were injured whilst training in Germany, unfortunately my brother was one of them. Not seriously injured luckily, but he's had 14 stitches on his head and will be left scarred from it but otherwise ok.


    It's left the army looking pretty bad as the accident took place on the army base and it was army instructors who were driving the vehicles. The 2 tanks and a landrover (which my bro was in) ended up in a ditch after coming off a steep slope in icy conditions. They were all left with a variety of injuries, one of them is still in hospital at the moment.


    Anyway, my brother managed to get this pic of the crash site - you can see how bent the Landy is:








    All of them recently spent 6 months in Iraq incident free and then this happens back on the base!



    He came home today for a few days to recover and I took a wee pic of the injury - ouch!







    It could certainly have been worse though from the sounds of it though. Think i'll stick to my desk job!!

    Glad he's OK.

    Bet the Land-Rover will still drive too, despite being a little twisted.

    That's a nasty old wound, but I'm glad he's realtively unscathed as it could have been much worse.

    Your bro must be double-hard to stand there and take a photo, whilst being part-scalped. Sounds like a good man to know when you're in a tight spot
