I certainly couldn’t see the row of body parts. Standish finished packing the sat comms into its case and wedged it between the front seats, then stood up on the flatbed behind us, one hand gripping a section of frame, the other his AK. He was clearly going for the Lawrence of Arabia look. We reached the lower ground, about a K from the target, when a light-coloured vehicle detached itself from the buildings.
