Recording the stories of British troops in Afghanistan

Corporal Georgina Coupe

Corporal Georgina Coupe is the video camerawoman for the British Army’s Combat Camera Team (CCT) based in Afghanistan throughout summer 2012 as part of 12th Mechanized Brigade.

The current CCT includes me Corporal Georgina Coupe, camerawoman, Sergeant Andy Reddy, photographer, and our team leader Captain Will Campbell Ricketts. Over the next six months we will be providing video, photographs and news articles telling the story of British troops in Afghanistan as we continue to mentor the Afghan security forces.

For me, the best thing about my job is the variety of work and people we work with. In the space of a few hours we can go from filming helicopter manoeuvres to a Combat Logistic Patrol transporting vital supplies across the desert. You can’t just arrive in Afghanistan and turn the camera on. Before we deployed, we completed a comprehensive training package, enabling us to be ready to go straight out on the ground, alongside the front-line troops.
