Soldiers, sailors and airmen serving at Camp Bastion met 007 star Daniel Craig when he visited the base.
He surprised the 800 troops who were about to watch the latest Bond film, Skyfall.
After a brief introduction of the film to the enthusiastic audience, Chester-born Daniel was given a tour of the camp during which he had an opportunity to meet soldiers and see some of the training they do before they deploy to forward operating bases.
Daniel then moved to the Heavy Weapons Range and was given the opportunity to fire some of the machine guns that UK forces use.
Daniel also met staff and patients at the world class Bastion Role 3 Hospital which is acknowledged to be a centre of excellence for trauma medicine.
His final stop was a practical demonstration of Counter Improvised Explosive Device searching techniques, where he was given the opportunity to use detectors to search for buried training devices. Daniel was taught the skills to find roadside bombs by the EOD and Search Task Force.
