This is Defence IQ's full length interview featuring Col Bob Seddon, the former Principal Ammunition Technical Officer for the British Army. He speaks with Editor Robert Densmore about his experiences as the senior ranking counter-IED operator in Afghanistan, and reveals his thoughts on how the fight is progressing since announcing his retirement last year. His concerns are clear: the Army is coping with a history of inadequate training in IED operations and is battling against previous setbacks like poor equipment and insufficient armoured vehicle support. We also take the opportunity to discuss the big players in the conflict - from Taliban tactics to Iran's funding of insurgency campaigns. Are we winning the war in Afghanistan? Hear what this veteran of Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghan operations has to say.
