What does the future hold for those who have been grievously injured in IED attacks in Afghanistan and Iraq? Counter IED operators in these conflicts have been placed under tremendous strain, according to Colonel Bob Seddon, the British Army's former Principal Ammunition Technical Officer. He talks about the staggering casualties incurred by high threat IED operations - and he expresses his concern over the psychological impact that these operations have produced among those EOD experts he led in the field. We press Col Seddon on his opinion of the British Army's withdrawal date in Afghanistan - and he reveals his scepticism over what end result will actually emerge after the coalition ceases to challenge the Taliban on their own front lines.
