The Liberation of Afghanistan

Ken spotted this rug at Duxford aerodrome

The description says

Afghan women made and sold decorative rugs to of duty Soviet troops who occupied the country in the 1980s. They remained a source of income throughout the war 2001 to present. They now depict British and American, not Soviet, equipment.

Ironic!!
