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 .

Congratulations to RLC soldier LCpl Stu Elvin of the Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC), Bassingbourn Barracks, who has received two bronze medals at the World Rowing Indoor Championships 2021. LCpl Elvin has represented the Army in rowing for a number of years. Having individually qualified at the British Championships for the Men's (age 30-39) 500m to race at the World Championships, he was also selected to represent the Armed Forces in the Men's Team race. The races took place on 23 Feb 21, where LCpl achieved third place in his individual race and an hour later, he received another bronze medal as he played an integral part of the Armed Forces Men's Team. His commitment and success in rowing is nothing short of impressive with his ability to balance work, training and family life along with the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19. Competing in any sport at this level requires a unique strength and determination – something which the LCpl displays in abundance, putting in hours of solitary training, where he has had to use his mental resilience to push himself further than most would. ...
