My protection……

Working in Niger wasn’t without its problems, one of which being that whenever I moved anywhere outside the perimeters of the base camp, I had to travel with an armed escort.

Having been a British soldier for well over 20 years, I must admit that the thought of an incident occurring whilst this lot were “protecting” me filled me with dread.

Lovely blokes all, and they were fantastic with me for the whole year I spent there, but I’m still not totally sure all of them knew which way round to point the things in case of emergency.
