Two men who last saw each other in Afghanistan 10 years ago when they served alongside each other with the British military have been reunited, after Afghan translator Nazir Ahmad Muslim and his family managed to escape the Taliban.

Lieutenant Colonel Oliver Lee, who was commanding officer of 45 Commando, and his friend have been speaking about Nazir’s new start in the UK – and what was gained and lost during all the years of conflict in Afghanistan.
