    I have just been to watch the kids playing sport of have learned of a tradegy that has hit our small country, one of our SAS soldiers died in a firefight last night in Kabul. His name has not yet been released.

    I guess he was a soldier and an elete soldier at that but for our tiny country it is most likely that one will know some one that new him, we have just suffered devestating earth quakes that have destroyed our second largest city and the pike River Coal mine disaster as well now this. My thoughts to his immediate family and his regiment.

    They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them

    We will remember them
