YORKS soldiers on patrol in Helmand
Soldiers from 1st Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment (1 YORKS) have been undertaking regular patrols in the Nahr-e Saraj area of Helmand province to improve security for the local population.
Nearly 500 members of 1 YORKS arrived in Helmand at the beginning of October 2011 for a six-month deployment in support of 20th Armoured Brigade.
They have deployed to Afghanistan as a complete battalion for the first time and are based at forward operating bases across Helmand province, carrying out patrols and security operations, and providing mortar and heavy machine gun support to the NATO-led mission.
