This week The Telegraph has been running a set of intimate portraits of women currently serving in Afghanistan. Visit Helmand Blog, run by the UK Forces Afghanistan Media Team in Camp Bastion, to link to these stories. On Monday The Telegraph joined Captain Abi Bradley on patrol with the men of the Gurkha Rifles and on Tuesday talked to Sergeant Carly Lambert about how she copes being away from her daughter in the UK. On Wednesday Lance Corporal Ashton Mulligan, who joined up at 16, explained why she now has ambivalent feelings towards home. Yesterday Lance Corporal Laura Roberts described what life is like for a single girl surrounded by hundreds of young men. Today Lance Corporal Sophie Wright tells how she she recreates home comforts on the frontline and about the small pleasures she misses while serving in the Helmand Province.
