UK Troops Prepare in Mock Afghani Village

I just finished watching the final part of this 5 part series called "Afghanistan in the UK" presented by VBS. This is a great depiction of a secret "Afghani Village" set up in the UK to help train elite troops prior to their tour of duty in Afghanistan. The video gives you a first hand view of how the troops in their full combat uniforms encounter daily life in the village.

Their daily activities include patrols, meetings with "village elders", base defense, and other duties that they will have to carry out once they reach their true destination. It is quite interesting how many aspects they have included to prepare them for the realities of war that they will soon face. We have provided Part One of the series below.
