VIDEO: 8km convoy resupplies troops in Helmand, Afghanistan

A convoy stretching for eight kilometres and consisting of more than one hundred UK, US and Afghan National Army vehicles set off just before the Afghan elections in mid August to resupply coalition bases in northern Helmand.

The 116-vehicle convoy, one of the biggest to ever leave Camp Bastion, was travelling a dangerous 70km to bases in the Sangin Valley via the outskirts of Gereshk and then off-road through open desert.

Captain Gareth Lowe, the Operations Officer for Camp Bastion's Close Support Logistic Regiment, said, "We're going to fight these vehicles through no matter what the enemy throw at us."
