Christmas in Afghanistan: That's a wrap for British troops
Sunday 23 December 2012
Troops on tour in Afghanistan are getting into the festive spirit with a bit of help from Father Christmas and his sidekick Frosty the Snowman. Sergeant Gavin Conington from Bonnyrigg, Midlothian, (left) and Private Daniel McInally, from Addiewell, West Lothian, of The Royal Scots Borderers, 1st Battalion, took in a delivery of presents at Camp Tombstone in Helmand Province on Saturday. The troops celebrate Christmas Day with cups of tea in bed and a traditional dinner served by their senior officers. PA
