TWO Lancaster soldiers are helping run the British Military Hospital at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.

Territorial Army soldiers Captain Adina Royle, who has managed the orthopaedic outpatients department at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Corporal Sheila Fisher, an Intensive Care Nurse at Furness General Hospital, have been deployed with 208 Field Hospital (Volunteers) which is running the hospital until early next year.

Grandma Adina, 45, said: “I am committed to our mission in Afghanistan and fully understand that we would not be capable of delivering that mission if it was not for the contribution made by Territorials who normally work in the NHS as doctors, nurses and in other roles.”
