OPERATION VESUVIUS, BASRA, 6 MAY 2006 [Allocated Title]
Mine clearance operations near Basra.
Soldiers gather by Land Rovers before walking into position; one soldier has an explosives dog. The platoon walks down a road and gathers at the target location (in a rural area near date palms) where the dog is released. Soldiers survey the area with mine detectors and probes, and locations are excavated. Search continues on nearby open ground; the soldiers form a line and advance across rubble (some shaky camerawork as the camera is moved about and eventually placed in the back of a Land Rover).
