his head to hers.

10:
00:55 CUT TO BLACK

10:
00:57 EXT. AFGHANISTAN. DAY A.

Flash-forward.

A blurry image, the noise of gunfire and frantic screams of battle.

As the image clears we are close up on Molly's desperate face

as she screams into her head mic from the pov of a casualty.

MOLLY:

Man down! Man down! One Cat A, urgent

med-evac required! MIST out, wait out.

She speaks urgently to the casualty.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

Stay with me, okay... you're gonna be

alright. I'm gonna get you out of

here... I just need you to stay with

me, okay!

Molly's image once again becomes blurry. Her voice fades as the

victim loses consciousness.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

Stay with me!

JAMES (VO)

(from far away)

Come on, stay with me..

10:
01:23 EXT. CAMP BASTION. DAY 17.

Caption:
27th APRIL 2014

James is leaning out of the window of his vehicle addressing 2

section in their full PT kit as they are part way through their

5k run. He drives alongside them.

JAMES (CONT’D)

(driving and leaning out of

side)

Stay with me... Just because you're

tugged up all snug and safe in Bastion,

does not mean you are no longer real

soldiers! Now dig in!

We see the platoon digging in and giving it their best. We see

Molly near the tail of the group.

MOLLY:

Give us a lift, boss.

JAMES:

You'd only be cheating yourself,

Dawes.

Molly watches James raise his coffee cup in her direction.

JAMES (CONT'D)

Oh by the way, the last one over the

finish line is on 'latrine clean'! Now

come on!

And with this James puts his foot down and the vehicle speeds

off creating a cloud of dust.

We see the faces of the troops, each gripped with a will to win.

James has that ability to engender competition.

10:
01:44 EXT. CAMP BASTION. DAY 17.

The finish line and James is now sitting on the bonnet of his

car, relaxed and drinking his coffee. He hears the noise of 2

Section and Kinders yelling at them, approaching.

KINDERS:

Moll... fellas... if this is all the

effort you're going to put in, we can

do a 5k run every morning and a 10k run

every evening until you do not look like

the unfit rabble you look like today.

Can we remember we are the British Army!

2 Section thunder towards the line.

JAMES:

The last soldier past me is gonna be

on...

(yelling in warcry)

Latrine clean!

Suddenly a few yards from the finish the leaders slow up. There

is clearly some premeditated plan underway. James and Kinders

exchange puzzled glances.
