A group of former soldiers have been reunited with their Afghan interpreter after winning a campaign to allow him to settle in the UK.
The Mercian Regiment veterans felt he was “left behind” and forced a government U-turn.
Seeing him again “brought back the brotherhood”, one said.
When international forces withdrew from Afghanistan year, Abdul failed to get UK national security clearance after being rejected for a job with the US armed forces.
The soldiers engaged a lawyer specialising in national security to prepare a case for judicial review.
Before it reached court, the Home Office agreed to review Abdul’s situation, and ultimately agreed he was not a security risk.
