First prize

It is all very well pointing out the errors of journalists but the first prize, it seems, must go to the anonymous MoD official who posted this piece on the MoD web site:
Operating in WMIK (Weapons Mounted Installation Kit) Land Rovers, Jackals, Scorpion reconnaissance vehicles, Mastiff armoured vehicles, and on foot, the British troops moved up to capture the important crossings.
When the MoD does not even know the names of the equipment deployed in Afghanistan, there is little hope for us. No wonder they can't buy the right equipment.
