Post photographer Adam Fradgley travelled with the British Army to Southern Iraq. Here are some of the haunting images he brought back.

Byline: Adam Fradgley

Top, The exhaustion shows on the face of a soldier returning from a mission carrying his kit and ammo box; inset, the sun sets behind the barb wire fence surrounding the Shaibah Logistics Base. The vivid colours are created by layers of pollution from the refineries burning impure gas

Left, a medic walks through the 200m long central corridor inside the tented field hospital at Shaibah Logistics Base; top, a young boy, watched by his brother, waves at the soldiers as they pass through the streets of Al Zubair

Right, two destroyed Iraqi tanks lie by an archway on the road to Basra, creating a chilling monument to war; far right, a soldier crouches poised in the doorway of a Puma Helicopter as it arrives at Shaibah Logistics Base in Basra
