May 10, 2013, 11:11 AM

Private Jack Halsey Royal Logistic Corps, 22, from Northampton is serving with 9 Theatre Logistic Regiment on Operation Herrick 18 in Camp Bastion, Afghanistan.

Jack, who has spent three years in the Army, is detached from 3 Close Support Logistic Regiment for the duration of the tour and will be going forward to the patrol bases and packing up equipment ready to be sent back to the UK.

The Theatre Logistic Group operates as part of Joint Force Support (Afghanistan) supporting 1 Mechanised Brigade. The TLG provides the deployed British forces in Afghanistan with logistic support; everything from ammunition, body armour, vehicles, and weapons, to fuel, rations, medical supplies and water. A more recent extension to the TLG's role is the recovery of kit and equipment back to the United Kingdom in preparation for its refurbishment and reconditioning or disposal. The TLG also provides a medical supply capability which supports the in-theatre hospital.
