Here is a special group of Engine Room Pakistanis in the Southampton shed getting ready to go home after a 10 month tour - the one to the left of me is Wazir Zada - "Tindal" repatriation only allowed 75lbs per man and I weighed every bag on butcher's scales. A lot of these men are from Swat state where the troubles are now - you wonder what has happened to them and their families.
