“Sorry, boys, my hands are tied. The order comes from Special Force HQ, and I can’t countermand it. So I’m giving you a warning order for an imminent active service operation. You’ve got forty minutes to call your wives and girlfriends and sort your kit.”
After the tragic loss of one of his patrol on an ill-advised training exercise in the Arctic Circle, Spider Shepherd and his comrades are angry at their incompetent commanding officer. Although on rest, they are placed under a Warning Order effectively gagging them after a whitewash inquiry. Ordered to repeat the earlier fatal training, they’re then sent into Sierra Leone.
