With the Welsh Guards’ recent arrival in Helmand province to mentor and advise the Afghan National Police, a fund has been launched back home to support the troops and their families.

The 1st Battalion Welsh Guards (1 WG) recently took over responsibility for the Police Mentoring and Advisory Group in Lashkar Gah, Helmand province, from 1st Battalion The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment.

For the next seven months, HQ Company of 1 WG will be training new Afghan police recruits at the training centre in Lashkar Gah while the remainder of the battalion, supported by members of the Light Dragoons and the Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment, will be advising and mentoring police on the ground as Police Advisory Teams.

This will be the second tour of Afghanistan for many of the Guardsmen. In 2009, the battalion was involved in sustained and ferocious fighting in Helmand province, the area that they now occupy as police mentors.
