Lieutenant Ben Wilkins was a British Royal Air Force officer stationed in Kajaki Province, Afghanistan. He was married with three children.

During Day 9, Captain Olson and fellow officer Ben Wilkins were being transported back to their unit in a U.S. military convoy commanded by Major Shepherd from United States Air Force. When they arrived at their destination just before 12:00pm GMT, Lt. Chris Tanner called Shepherd to warn that someone had taken control of his surveillance drone and was locking onto their armored vehicle. Seconds later, the drone fired an Hellfire missile, killing Olson and Wilkins instantly, along with two American soldiers, Hugh Gurney and Chris Lawson. ("Day 9: 11:00am-12:00pm")
