The BBC are reporting the two helicopters that crashed in Iraq, killing two and seriously injuring another service person, were British Puma helicopters.

Scuttlebutt has it that these aircraft were operating with the UK Special Forces Support Group, which operates in the area on a counter-insurgency mission, and the personnel killed and injured were a mix of SF and non SF personnel.

RIP.
