The UK’s The Telegraph has published a series of pictures and interviews of members of the 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, before, during, and after their deployment to Afghanistan. In these powerful photos you can see the physical and psychological toll that the war has taken on these young men. Especially moving is this comment from one young private, who survived an IED explosion, of how he coped after going home: “I walked for miles and miles not caring where I stepped.”
