April 26, 2012

Three Sunderland brothers, currently serving in Afghanistan’s Helmand province, have been reunited for a short time on the front line.

Anthony Nutton, aged 20, and his brothers, Neil, 20, and John, 22, were only in the same camp for two days before they were split up, but they have managed to meet each for a much needed catch up.

Rifleman John Nutton, from 2nd Battalion The Rifles, said:

“Both of them came to meet me after I’d come in yesterday, and we all had a good laugh. It was great.”

Trooper Neil Nutton, from the Light Dragoons, said:

“I was worried I wouldn’t see John, but it was fantastic going for a brew together.”

John has been in Helmand for six months and is in Camp Bastion before flying home, while Anthony and Neil are both beginning their time in Afghanistan, Anthony having been there for three weeks and Neil arriving just a week ago.
