Human angle

Before the Royal Engineers can catch their breath, any spare time has been spent on a succession of self-funded small scale projects including the restoration of orphanages, hospitals and schools.

The combat engineers' brief is to ensure first that this scheme meets its tight 15 week programme. Then, as members of the 20 nation strong International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), the engineers seek to improve as much of Kabul as possible. The Civil Military Co-operation is a part of ISAF and works on a succession of small scale projects such as orphanages, hospitals and schools.
