Castlemartin Calamity

Very sad to hear of the death and serious injuries to the Royal Tank Regiment soldiers during the training at Castlemartin Ranges.  It is a salutary reminder of the hazards associated with live firing exercises which can be as demanding as front line combat.  There is an important difference between sanitized computer games and the rough physical distractions in armoured warfare.  But replicating the friction of war has to be secondary to ensuring our soldiers are trained in a safe environment.
