PICTURE of the day: Christmas dinner in PB Talibjan

The insurgents don’t take Christmas off, so nor can the troops.

Soldiers like those of Patrol Base Talibjan are here making what they can of Christmas day in between patrols and compound clearances.

For an hour today they gathered to celebrate Christmas and relax.

They carry out their duty so that people back at home can enjoy a peaceful Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone.
