A job well done Royals. Stand down and have a swally on me

UK Forces Afghanistan

The last full Royal Marines commando group to serve in Afghanistan on Operation Herrick is returning to the UK.

The end of 40 Commando’s tour marks the end of more than a decade of Royal Marines deployments in the country.

At Main Operating Base (MOB) Price, troops from 40 Commando symbolically lowered the Royal Navy’s white ensign that has flown above their base in the Nahr-e Saraj district for the past 6 months – the last time the flag will fly in Helmand province.
