With a six-month train­ing regime ahead, it’s hard to be­lieve a group of weedy Poms could be­come in­fantry­men serv­ing in Afghanista­n. But be­fore any­one is de­ployed, they’ll need to be bro­ken down to be bro­ken in.

Af­ter just one oath pledg­ing their al­le­giance, a quick hair cut and a ver­bal dress­ing down from their su­pe­ri­ors, these young sol­diers face with­drawals from leav­ing their loved ones and be­gin to sec­ond guess their de­ci­sions.

But these young boys quickly be­come men as they push to hold their po­si­tions in the force.
