Fight for This Country; Cheryl visits Afghanistan

18 Sep

Our favourite Geordie has just landed back in the UK after her surprise trip to Afghanistan.

She flew to Camp Bastion in Helmand Province to surprise the soldiers, sailors and air men, including those injured in battle, who have been serving their country for months on end. The trip was to mark 10 years of British Operation in the country.

She underwent hostile environment training before her trip and boarded a troop carrier plane at RAF Brize Norton for the 12 hour flight, which arrived on Wednesday.

She tweeted this morning; “A shout out to all my soldiers.. Just got back from Afghanistan.. Unbelievable experience.. I wish I could’ve bought them all home with me X”

She also acted as air hostess on the flight, serving drinks and food to the soldiers preparing to land in the battle zone.
