CAPTION:
February 16th, 2014

We are seeing the world upside down, spinning and bouncing

chaotically. Shouts and screams from all directions. Boots flying

everywhere - dust abounds.

10:
00:36 CARD - BBC LOGO

In this frightening chaos we don't know where we are or what is

occurring. We presume it's war.

As the shot changes we realise we are seeing Molly as the wheelbarrow

in a wheelbarrow race. She's being 'wheeled' by Kinders.

The platoon are holding an inter-section mini Olympics. The

soldiers corporals yell on their soldiers.

It is a relay of 'crazy' events from school days - wheel barrow,

egg and spoon, hula hooping, dressing up and obstacle race. And

is being taken extremely seriously by all concerned. We see Molly

in the middle of an improvised obstacle course being shouted on

by her section and James.

JAMES:

Come on Dawes! You're about to go on

two week holiday. Have some human

decency and put some bloody effort in!

MOLLY:

(gasping for breath)

'Human decency'? This is war innit?

JAMES:

It's healthy competition, now dig in.

Molly overtakes the others during the hula hoop section and gets

to the webbing first. She is in the lead now.

Molly gets her leg tangled in some webbing. Smurf steps forward

to help her free it.

SMURF:

Fourteen hours on a flight with the wit

and wisdom of the Smurf. You've won the

lottery of life getting R & R with me,

Molls.

MOLLY:

You reckon?

SMURF:

Do you want me to book us a couple of

tickets to the Mile High Club?

Just as they're freed, Kinders rushes to them, picks Molly up

and carrying her, runs them through the finish line to huge cheers

and hugs from the rest of 2 section.

JAMES:

(massively impressed)

Yes Dawes!

The boys pick Molly up and give her some Minnie Mouse ears which

she puts on with a huge small. She's handed the 'gold cup' and

they all start cheering 'Under Fives, Under Fives!'

James watches them all celebrate with pride on his face.

10:
01:52 EXT. COMPOUND BASE. AFGHANISTAN. DAY 11. 10:31

Molly walks across the compound with a bowl of Coco Pops. She

sees Kinders, Smurf, Baz Vegas, Mansfield and Dangle Berries in

the showers clearly still in celebratory mood.

As Molly eats it she sees Sohail with his wing man watching her

as they walk past. Sohail stares directly at her and points and

says something to his wing man. Molly can't hear but it doesn't

look like Sohail is saying anything complimentary.

SOHAIL:

(in Pashto - 10:
02:06)

There she is, she looks at me as

if I’m the enemy.

MOLLY:

(mutters to herself)

What's your problem, face-ache?
