(he sadly passed away at the end of series 1)

Smurf is a much loved member of 2 Section, one of the lads and the life and soul of the party. He’s bright, witty and a lot of fun to be around. He and Molly soon become firm allies and best friends, although this may turn into something more than friendship one day. Or so he hopes.

But underneath Smurf’s outgoing exterior lies a darker side.

He has his own mission to play out: his twin brother was killed on an earlier Herrick deployment and he feels he has a point of honour to prove on this tour.

Will this cloud his judgment in the theatre of war, or will Smurf learn to let go of his demons and grow as a soldier over his time in Afghanistan?
