Patrol ends soldiers' Afghan tour

By: Leanne RinneThe nine-man group set out at first light from Sterga 2, a base that is located on the southern side of the river Helmand, to carry out the ground dominating patrol aimed at preventing insurgents potentially carrying "lethal aid" into the green zone. The 1st Battalion Royal Regiment Fusiliers are expected to leave in a few days' time and will be replaced by troops from 4 Scots, most of whom will carry out an eight-month tour. The British presence in Afghanistan will be almost halved by the end of this year to 5,200 and all combat operations should be over by the end of 2014, leaving Afghan forces fully in control.
