Images of Helmand

For The Yorkshire Regiment, 12 December is recognised as Helmand Day and one of our important, regimental Company Days.  Our recent history of duty in Afghanistan includes Op HERRICKs 7,10,11,15 and 16 and more recently, our soldiers were some of the last to leave Kabul on Op PITTING, enabling the evacuation of entitled personnel through their selfless commitment and compassion.  Today we recognise the achievements of all those who served in Afghanistan, the 18 soldiers sadly killed in action and the 70 members of the Regiment who received operational gallantry awards.  Look at these great images we found in the archives:
