Apparently a Gurkha patrol was sent out with orders to track down a Taliban warlord described as a 'high-value target'
Having identified their target, a fierce battle ensued during which the warlord was killed. To prove that they had got their man, the Gurkhas attempted to remove the body for identification. Further enemy fire necessitated a fast exit minus corpse. So, an unnamed soldier drew his kukri - the standard-issue Gurkha knife - removed the man's head and legged it. Ok so a camera could have been issued but it wasn't
Ministry of Defence sources have been quick to emphasise that the British Army is appalled by what has happened.(Yeah Ok!!)
Meanwhile laundry operatives at all sites in Afghanistan have reported an increase in urine soaked combat trousers caused by uncontrolled laughing.
This is about the most positive story I have heard to come out of that sh1thole
