Accused war criminal Ben Roberts-Smith kept more than a dozen Department of Defence drone videos of Afghanistan military operations buried in his backyard, including videos watermarked as “secret” and only to be shared among certain NATO forces.

The files buried by the former Special Air Service Regiment soldier in a pink, child’s lunchbox include 13 videos of drone vision taken by the NATO military forces in Afghanistan as well as copies of classified operational reports from an SAS mission in Southern Afghanistan.
