The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards' (SCOTS DG) Delta Squadron Warthog Group has been in Afghanistan for 80 days, covering, in that time, 41,000 km (or 25,625 miles) with their all-terrain vehicles; the equivalent of circumnavigating the globe, or making the journey overland from Camp Bastion to Edinburgh five-and-a-half times.
