MGB in Afghanistan

A convoy logistics patrol, manned predominantly by members of the Queens Own Gurhka Logistics Regiment, delivers resupplies of rations, ammunition and other life support to A Company, 1 R WELSH at Showal. It is also carrying ISO containers of building materials to create a permanent patrol base for ANA and coalition forces. The speed of build has been incredible; the sangars and hesco walls have been built within 3 days of supplies being dropped off. Sergeant Adrian 'AD' Dixon, acts as Site Manager and keeps the build on track, with a punishing schedule that sees Afghan and Royal Engineers working on a 24/7 basis.Picture credit: Squadron Leader Dee Taylor, RAF
