Gee, I wonder how he would like Scottish winters...

African soldier sues MoD for £150,000after accusing the Army of "failing toprotect him" from Britain´s winter chill

Daily Mail [UK]

An African soldier is suing the military for £150,000 after accusing them of failing to protect him from the British winter. Michael Asiamah says he suffered from a "cold-related" condition after officers neglected to supply him with warm clothing during an 18-hour exercise in the freezing wind. The 36-year-old, who served with the Adjutant General´s Corps, said the army exposed him to the cold despite knowing that people of black Caribbean and African origin are more susceptible to cold injuries. Mr Asiamah, who was born in Ghana, told the High Court the exercises on Salisbury Plain

A word from Tim:

I guess he wants a vacation in Barbados. I don't suppose it occured to tis fellow that British soldiers often serve in - I don't know - cold weather areas!

This is whatmuticulturalism gets you.

Dana Mathewson's 2c:

Good question, Jack. The British Navy certainly suffered in their base at Scapa Flow during WWI and WWII. It's cold as hell up there.

And right around this time of year we should be remembering the Battle of the Bulge, and the fact that Allied troops were not sufficiently clothed.

Not to mention that the German Wehrmacht was totally unprepared for the weather when it was sent into Russia -- similarly to Napoleon's Army.
