Further details

Simon decides it's about time he and his colleagues prove they understand the true horrors of war by getting out there and actually fighting. So it is that team Heathcote Sanders go paintballing. Okay, so it's not quite the same as fighting in an actual war, but you can't expect Simon to take part in one of those - I mean, people actually die in those things.
