    Canadian cowboy - cool story

    The British Army has recruited a Canadian cowboy to teach soldiers how to look for improvised explosive devices (IEDs) hidden in the ground when deployed in Afghanistan.

    The cowboy is professional tracker Terry Grant, aged 52, who is famed for his hit reality television show 'Mantracker' in which he tracks contestants over vast swathes of the Canadian wilderness.

    He has now been employed to pass on his unique ground sign awareness skills to the soldiers of 7th Armoured Brigade (the Desert Rats) who are set to deploy to Afghanistan next year.

    The Desert Rats are currently training on Exercise Prairie Thunder 1 at the British Army Training Unit Suffield (BATUS) located in the heart of the vast plains of Alberta in the west of Canada.
