Kajaki. The true story

Last night members of RHQ the RLC attended the local charity premiere of the BAFTA nominated Kajaki.The true story film at Cineworld in Aldershot. They were lucky enough to meet members of the cast and crew; Andy Gibbins, Thomas Davison, and David Elliot played members of 3 Para and director and producer Paul Katis

The film is the true story of a small unit of soldiers who were positioned on a ridge overlooking the Kajaki dam. A small patrol sets out to disable a Taliban roadblock, and unknowingly maneuvers themselves into a minefield left behind from the Russian invasion in the 1980’s. One of the soldiers sets off a land mine, losing his leg and setting into motion a desperate rescue mission as his comrades come to his aid.

The film had a limited release in November 2014, and was shown at selected Cineworld cinemas around the country. It is out on DVD, Blu-Ray and On-Demand on the 8th June

Add Kajaki. The true story to your must see list, its a powerful and deeply moving film .

Over the last two weeks, seven members of the 17 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC, Marchwood Regimental Dive Team successfully organised the ‘deep phase’ of Exercise SUBMERGED CRUSADER 21 in the Isle of Skye, Scotland. In total, 20 divers took part in numerous training serials including: live decompression up to depths of 42m, ultrathermic cutting, hydraulic tools, search and recovery and a seabed survey in the murky depths of Loch Alsh, Loch Akin and Loch Na Beiste. The team were ably supported by the dive tender MV Moorhen and a Navy Chamber crew from the Defence Diving School who conducted lessons on safely recovering a diver to a recompression chamber.#BritishArmyLogistics #WeSustain #WeAreTheRLC ...

RLC personnel from BATUK have been helping to make donations of food and books to Hope and Homes Recreation Centre, a local orphanage home to 56 children in Kenya. Hope and Homes first became a registered recreation centre in 2011 by Suzanne Wangiru. Suzanne created the centre in order to rehabilitate street children, as well as orphans and young girls that have been rescued form early marriages. Cpl Shannon Stevens who is currently on detachment from 13AASR, commented on her experience visiting this fundamental centre: “When we entered the Centre, we were taken by surprise as there were more children than we had imagined there would be. We helped to distribute food, drawing books and reading books and the children were ecstatic. It was a surreal experience at Hope and Homes, full of differing emotions, but it was definitely a great opportunity for the members of CSS 2nd Line to engage with the community creating a better working relationship with BATUK.”Major R Crane MBE RLC, SO2 CSS BATUK commented: “Witnessing the delight on the kids’ faces when they received the books and clothes that had been donated by friends and families across UK was very humbling. There are so many children in need and every little helps.” #BritishArmyLogistics #WeSustain #WeAreTheRLC ... See MoreSee Less
