Corporal Troy Sanson and Corporal Marika Sanson are not only equipment auditors in the Australian Army, but husband and wife working together in Tarin Kot, Afghanistan, over the Christmas period.

Mid-caption: Australian Defence Force personnel currently deployed to Multi-National Base Tarin Kot in Afghanistan are decking the halls of Poppy's with tinsel and holly, rehearsing their favourite carols and eagerly awaiting post from home in the build-up to Christmas 2011.

Afghanistan's winter has brought cold nights and clear days but little snow so the promise of a Northern Hemisphere white Christmas looks unlikely for the Australians, but that's probably a good thing for those soldiers on duty in the forward operating bases.

Around 1550 ADF personnel are currently deployed to Afghanistan and throughout the Middle East Area of Operations (MEAO). 

At Multi-National Base Tarin Kot in Uruzgan province, ADF personnel decorated Poppy's recreation area prior to holding carols by candlelight on Sunday 18 December 2011 with their Coalition colleagues from Afghanistan, Singapore, Slovakia and the United States. 

Operation Slipper is Australia's military contribution to the international campaign against terrorism, maritime security in the MEAO and countering piracy in the Gulf of Aden.
