Further videos will be released by Telegraph TV through the week. Yesterday Captain Abi Bradley of the Gurkha Rifles described the particular challenges facing female soldiers operating in one of the world’s deadliest environments, the Helmand Province. Lance Corporal Laura Roberts describes what life is like for a single girl surrounded by hundreds of young men while Lance Corporal Sophie Wright recounts how she recreates her home comforts. And Lance Corporal Ashton Mulligan, who joined up at 16, explains why she now has ambivalent feelings towards ‘home’. Each one of these remarkable women casts a different perspective on a long Afghan war.
