Sappers build new command post in Helmand
Sappers from 39 Armoured Engineer Squadron, part of the Task Force Helmand Engineer Group, have built a new command post, named Kahmanan, in the village of Nahr Khil, Helmand province.
In a two-week operation codenamed KAPCHA AFSANA 9 (Cobra Legend 9), the Royal Engineers from 39 Armoured Engineer Squadron, part of 32 Engineer Regiment, constructed the command post, with Riflemen from A Company, 1st Battalion The Rifles (1 RIFLES), providing security.
The establishment of the new command post has increased the area of responsibility secured by 1 RIFLES and their Afghan National Security Forces partners – a move made possible by the successes they’ve achieved in other parts of southern Nahr-e Saraj district.
The command post will enable the further extension of protected communities and the expansion of routes allowing greater freedom of movement for ISAF and Afghan security forces and locals.
