Instant Embassies.....

 
"The Foreign Office is assembling "instant embassies" to be flown, in containers, to trouble spots".

"They would include flat-pack buildings, tables, chairs, communications equipment and rations".

"The British embassy there (in Kabul) was very run-down and it took time to get it up and active again".

you trying to make sure you're firing blanks then by killing your swimmers?

Still, it's a welcome reminder that the Taliban were defeated 10 years ago.
