The complex process of drawing down Camp Bastion
27 June 2014 Last updated at 07:40 BST
Camp Bastion was once a bustling military metropolis, in its sheer scale comparable to a town the size of Reading.
There were fast food restaurants, local traders selling souvenirs, and three churches. Now there is just one church.
Drawing down is a very complex process - clearing the camp is the biggest logistical operation undertaken since World War Two.
