Reservist Prepares For First Time In Afghanistan

Michael Lindop

7:54am 31st August 2013

By day he works in an office for Lloyds TSB - but in three weeks time he'll be in Afghanistan working alongside the Afghan National Army.

23-year-old Rifleman Michael Lindop is from Dorset.

He's been a part time soldier in the Reservists for the last four years and this will be his first tour of duty.

He told us: "I think there will always be that element of worriedness especially from my mother, but my family and my work have always been very supportive."

"The training has been very extensive - I feel as prepared as I can be. I'm just really looking forward to getting out there."
