Unsuitable and melted

[ #29324 ]
Dear Log,

«Does the British government not have a duty of care to [its] troops in Iraq? My son had to purchase his own boots before going out to Iraq as the standard army-issued boots were unsuitable and melted in the intense heat. The British troops were known to the American troops as "the borrowers" due to their lack of equipment and short supplies.»

Meanwhile: "Yet greatness eludes him."
