This is the spectacular moment British soldiers lit up the night sky with a stunning display of flares.
There are currently around 1,600 members of the armed forces out in the Middle-East taking part in the biggest exercise in a decade.
Troops from the Royal Logistics Corps demonstrated the awesome ability of the flares, known as shamoolies, which are used to illuminate the enemy in combat.
A number of flares were left off in unison sending blinding streaks of white light criss-crossing the desert sky.
‘Exercise Shamal Storm’, which is taking place in Jordan, has been planned to test whether the British Armed Forces could successfully mobilise in the event of a full-scale military operation.
The stunning images were shot by photographer David Hedges.
He said: “As 30 flares were shot into the night sky, it was a brief delay before the landscape was thrown into a bright light, illuminating the rough mountainous terrain surrounding the British camp.”
