Ross Kemp in Afghanistan

Another documentary on UK's involvement in Afghanistan, this series documents the 1st Battalion, the Royal Anglian Regiment, in operations in Helmand.

Some quick talking points after watching 2 episodes (there will be 5 episodes).
  1. landmine hitting BVS-10 - concerns about mine-clearing procedures
  2. being vulnerable to enemy fire whilst crossing open territory - non-usage of smoke as cover
  3. practice of moving openly from Camp Bastion - possibility of losing element of surprise
  4. quickness of close air support - good procedures in place for calling in airstrikes
