Peter Londey, "Observing in South Lebanon", Wartime 3 (1998): 12-17

In the previous few weeks, he had seen the innocent and the less-than-innocent die in rocket attacks, roadside bombs, and attacks on military positions. His mates were joking that Lebanon was quiet enough, as long as you weren't with Paul, and he himself admitted that he had just about seen enough.
