    Default Friend killed in Iraq

    A mate of mine, 'Baz' Barwood was killed on Friday in Basra.

    He was only an MT driver, just goes to show you don't have to be actually fighting out there to be at risk.

    RIP Baz. My thoughts are with your family.

    It's easy to see this as 'just a news item', forgetting of the impact on the friends and family. This kind of event should be front page news so it never slips out of peoples minds.

    Frankly, I think it doesn't get much coverage because the majority of the population aren't interested. (Which is a disgrace)
