Fix bayonets

Outnumbered Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders defeated jihadis in the first bayonet charge since the Falklands (via Argghhh!!!).

Despite being outnumbered five to one, they suffered only three minor wounds in the hand-to-hand fighting near the city of Amara. The battle erupted after Land Rovers carrying 20 Argylls came under attack on a highway. After radioing for back-up, they fixed bayonets and charged at 100 rebels using tactics learned in drills.

Wow! Another shiver moment.

As many have said, thank goodness they're on _our_ side!
