Camp Bastion, the huge British military base in the Afghan desert, exists to support troops fighting on the frontline.

This exhibition uses brand new material recently collected in Afghanistan by the War Story team including photos, film, home videos and interviews to reveal the challenges of supporting the armed forces on the front line.

From keeping thousands troops hydrated in temperatures exceeding fifty degrees Celsius to the complexities of moving equipment, ammunition and supplies around the war torn Helmand Province this new display explores what life is like for soldiers living and serving in Afghanistan.

War Story: Supplying Frontline Afghanistan is part of IWM's War Story project, which offers British service personnel, their families and others involved in Operation Herrick in Afghanistan the opportunity to record their role in history by preserving their personal accounts of the current conflict in Afghanistan in IWM's unrivalled national collections.
