SCENES IN LASHKAR GAH, AFGHANISTAN, JULY 2007 (TAPE 5) [Allocated Title]
Combat Logistics Patrol Convoy sets out to Forward Operating Base (FOB) Arnhem in support of Operation Chakush, continued from previous tape.
Patrol convoy drives across stony road (shaky camerawork due to the rough terrain); Vector armoured vehicle drives alongside. Much dust in the air. Patrol passes construction area (with Hesco bastions), crosses canal and drives through an Afghan town (possibly Gereshk) and onward to FOB Arnhem, under construction. (Cab's eye view from DROPS lorry; some of the shots are taken through dirty windscreen.) Debrief on arrival.
Interviews at night with Second Lieutenant Rob McAllister, Commander of the Patrol Convoy and Claire Coler (?), one of the drivers.
