  • Dead Men Risen: The snipers' story

    Operating from a remote patrol base in Helmand, two British snipers were responsible for killing 75 Taliban fighters in just 40 days. In one remarkable feat of marksmanship, two insurgents were dispatched with a single bullet.

    Potter had notched up seven confirmed kills in Bara in 2007 and 2008 while Osmondís total was 23. Both were members of the Green Jackets team that won the 2006 British Army Sniper Championships.

            The insurgent took a shot and the Paras returned fire. He fled on a motorcycle and when he got a mile away, stopped and was giving "high fives" to a colleague when they were hit by a Hellfire missile fired by a Reaper drone.
