Into the Hornet's Nest. Series 2, episode 1.
Further stories of life on the frontline in Afghanistan, seen through films shot by the soldiers themselves. A mission deep into enemy territory is captured on camera by soldiers during Afghanistan's bloodiest summer on record. Troop surges in 2010 forced the Taliban to fight dirty, using more IEDs than ever. Against this backdrop a 100-strong company from 2nd Battalion, Duke of Lancaster's Regiment was deployed into one of the most dangerous areas of Helmand, tasked with protecting a vital road link. During a firefight, Kingsman Darren Deady was shot in the neck. He collapsed into the lap of Sergeant Mark Wilson who was filming on a helmet camera. The operation later claimed the life of Captain Andrew Griffiths - the first child of a serving officer to die in Afghanistan. A dust storm grounded all aircraft in Bastion, but two helicopter pilots rewrote the rulebook, flying in formation to navigate so they could evacuate him. Both men were treated in the UK, but died of their injuries.
