By Thumper 2 July 2008 21

The Herald Sun is reporting that Canberra cameraman and former Army Reservist Jamie Kidston has been wounded in action in Afghanistan.

Kidston was shot through the arm while covering a battle between Canadian and Afghan forces and Taliban fighters near Kandahar in the south of the country.

The incident took place on the 18th of June.

Kidston, a former army reservist, is married with children and lives just outside Canberra.

Mael….Sorry, I think you misunderstood what I was trying to say. I never meant any member of the ADF being killed or wounded “observing” as being undeserving of “in-action”. I would actually put them in the combatant role because of what they were doing at the time.

I was just saying that I, and I think the AWM as well, does not include private contractors…such as journo’s, who get caught up in fighting, either by design or accident as killed in-action.
