Training for Afghanistan, 10 weeks till deployment.

YES only 10 weeks left now until we (well when I say we, a few hundred men & women) depart on our 6 month tour to Afghanistan, Helmand Provence.

So I thought a few images of the lads during the final stages of our training would be a good way for you to get to know some of these people who I will be featuring during those 6 months.

So here is a quick preview of our week down at Warcop Ranges conducting some final live firing training on a few weapons systems in order to prepare us for our adventures in Afghanistan.

Regards as always Rob

About robgrimesphotography

Experienced and enthusiastic, I have a real passion for photography that I have gained over the years and that shines through in my pictures and my portfolio. I specialise in capturing those spontaneous moments that we otherwise could lose, either at your wedding or on a relaxed family shoot of your choice. I am always happy to talk about photography, so if you think I might be the right person to take your photographs then give me a ring to discuss your pictures, they are yours after all. Also a full time serving soldier in the Infantry in the British Army, but soon to be leaving the forces after Project Afghan finishes.

    Black and white adds a certain – no nonsense no frills mystique to the images Rob – looking forward to more shots as and when posted 🙂

  3. I am really looking forward to following this project 🙂 Love how you have taken the shots from behind, these really resonate with me as it gives me the feeling of looking at the scene through their eyes – awesome.
