Musa Qala , 12 December 2007

 

                          It seemed colder than the desert had been that first night in Musa Qala .

                          In the morning there was frost on our bivvy bags. I woke up at one point in the

                          darkness , thinking I could hear gunfire . But it was just Nick Cornish , the Sunday

                          Times photographer, snoring.

                          I drifted back off to the comforting drone of the Spectre gunship overhead.
