A story marking the end of the combat operations in Helmand from the MoD…
And the imagery that went with the story
Am I the only one that finds the term ‘UK armed forces’ a bit strange, what happened to ‘British Armed Forces’
When did that change then?
In all the rush to talk about the end of the UK’s deployment in #afghanistan I think it important to recognise there are personnel still there, personnel who will be there for a while yet, and, personnel that aren’t there now who will be there in the future.
Let’s not forget them.
And, lets not forget the 453 personnel that lost their lives, the several thousand that were injured and the many more that played their part.
Whatever your opinion of the conflict, it behooves us all to give quiet thanks and with the Poppy campaign now in full swing, an extra couple of quid in the collection tin.
Anyway, as a bit of fun, how about an after Afghanistan bingo card :)
