Wiltshire-based soldiers from 40 Commando have trained Afghan soldiers to find and destroy Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Sergeant Kev Clark, an ISAF instructor from 11 EOD Regiment, based in Tidworth, Wiltshire, said:
"We teach them how to use search equipment and ground sign awareness. They are very good at ground sign anyway. For guys that are in the main illiterate they picked up the procedures extremely well and asked a lot of good questions.”
