Is it just me, or is the plot line for Gaunt's ghosts honor guard pretty stupid? Why send an honor guard all the way up to the shrine hold on a 2 week mission, when you could just send a Valkyrie in a day instead?
because it would be a really short(er) story also common sense and doing things the easy way don't apply in the guard just like how they don't apply in the British army either

And it was deemed as a kind of punishment for Gaunt. At least that's how I read it.
Wasn't the lands between the city and the shrine pretty much occupied enemy territory? It wouldn't make much sense in sending a VIP transport straight through the enemy army, I think.
And yes, Lugo was an idiot. It was his plan so if it really didn't make sense then that shouldn't surprise you.
