On the trip Cheryl reflected: ‘'Afghanistan was an unbelievable experience. The whole trip was incredible. The men and women I met out there were inspirational, and so amazingly brave and dedicated.”

Before admitting: “I was warned before I went out there that it could be dangerous. But nothing was going to stop me from going. And I'm just so glad I did.”

And it would seem the feeling was mutual as Task Force Helmand chief in charge of her stay admitted: “Her smile is infectious, she was up for doing everything we suggested. She was like one of the lads.”

‘Atta girl Cheryl!
