Building work at the Afghan National Army Officer Academy in Kabul is finished, and the first cadets are moving in.
The Academy is funded by the UK, and represents an enduring commitment to the country.
A team of British troops help the Afghan instructors train the cadets. They are deployed under the UK mission, Op Toral.
Modelled on the British Sandhurst, the Academy has been dubbed “Sandhurst in the Sand”.
In the third of her special reports from Kabul, Charlotte Cross went to take a look.
