When Sergeant Basanta Rai deployed to Afghanistan in April he thought his fourth tour of the country would be much like the previous deployments. However, he found himself proved wrong.

For the last six months, Sgt Rai, or ‘Baz’ as he known, has been working side-by-side with the Afghan Uniform Police (AUP). Sgt Rai and his Afghan colleagues have forged strong relationships through patrolling together during the day and eating and relaxing together in the evenings. As a result, Sgt Rai says this has been his most rewarding and enjoyable experience of Afghanistan.
