The fruits of a project that aims to explore the stories of the auxillary staff working alongside troops at Camp Bastion.

Photographs, home videos, on-the-ground interviews and time-lapse footage explore the challenges faced by the staff who support and supply British soldiers on the front line in Afghanistan.

These teams deal with issues as wide-ranging as how to keep thousands of troops hydrated in temperatures exceeding 50ºC and ways of moving equipment, ammunition and supplies around the war-ravaged Helmand Province.

Included in the exhibition is a wealth of brand new material that has been collected by the curators during a series of expeditions to Afghanistan in 2012 and 2013.
