Fire Mission - The Diary of a Firing Sergeant in Afghanistan

Craig Douglas was a Firing Sergeant for an Artillery Troop in Afghanistan. He spent 6 months in FOB Inkerman, also known as FOB Incoming due to the amount of attacks it was subjected to by the Taliban. His tour was from October 2007 until April 2008. Prior to him arriving, Ross Kemp had been through the base and on patrol experiencing a fire fight with the Taliban.

In the month of November the base was practically attacked every day and resupply was few and far between due to the hostile location.

Put on your body armour, don your helmet and take cover. The shells fall thick and fast with devastating consequences. Inside these pages you’ll find frustration, humour, fear, chickens and a goat.

Welcome to the Helmand Province through the eyes of an ordinary soldier who found himself in an extraordinary country.
