SAS Commander Quits Over Kit

30.10.2008

The commander of a Special Air Service (SAS) reserves unit has quit over a shortage of kit for his troops in afghanistan.

Major Morley, the commander of D Squadron, 23 SAS, reportedly resigned over the deaths of 3 23 SAS soldiers and an Intelligence Corps soldier in June. The 4 soldiers were travelling in a lightly armoured 'Snatch' Landrover when they were killed by an IED. A lack of suitable armoured vehicles for British troops has been the subject of criticism for some time.
