The Tongan military presence in Afghanistan is highly valued by everyone who works with them.

That's according to the British military attache in New Zealand, Lt. Colonel Tim Woodman.

He accompanied the British Minister of State for the Armed Forces, Andrew Robathan, who was in Tonga this week to present medals to the fourth contingent of Tongan troops who have just returned from Afghanistan.

The 55 Tongans help provide security for the UK's main base in Helmand province, Camp Bastion.

Lt. Col. Woodman tells Bruce Hill the Tongan military contribution is very much appreciated.
