Patrol Base Sparta in pictures and music

United Kingdom

Soldiers from Patrol Base Sparta show their ingenuity and resourcefulness in making austere locations liveable. Between shifts on guard duty and patrols supporting the Afghan National Security Forces, these soldiers find time to relax in their meagre surroundings. Rifleman Luthmailagi happened to be playing his guitar when the Combat Camera Team visited and they managed to record him playing whilst relaxing with his fellow troops. This collection of images by Cpl Si Longworth (phot) is accompanied by Rifleman Luthmailagi's music - he is seen playing his guitar in the last image. MOD/Crown Copyright 2013
