The operation, which was planned to show the population the abilities of the Afghan National Security Forces, was led by the Afghan National Army (ANA), with soldiers from A Company, 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (The Black Watch) [3 SCOTS], in support.

The company-level operation, named TOR SEPHAR 37 or ‘Courageous Shield’, saw the troops dropped off by two Chinook helicopters in the Mohammed Abad Dashte area, in the south of the Nad ‘Ali district of Helmand province.
