Afghanistan training: Royal Regiment of Fusiliers in Cyprus

Troops from the north-east of England have travelled to Cyprus to train.

British troops are due to be withdrawn from Afghanistan in 2014 but until then the Army and the Territorial Army will continue to play a vital role.

Jonny Gwynne, John Marcon and Chris Hall, from County Durham, and Howard Smith, from Tyneside, travelled with the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers on a training mission to Cyprus, which prepares them for possible deployment to Afghanistan.
