A British army convoy makes a temporary halt in opium poppy fields outside the town of Gereshk in Helmand. 60 Close Support Squadron, 4 Logistic Supply Regiment RLC moved a resupply convoy of forty vehicles through dangerous desert conditions and towns populated with Taliban forces to Forward Operating Base Robinson. The convoy provided forward based troops with key supplies and ammunition for the forthcoming Operation SILICON, which would clear Taliban forces from the Sangin Area.
