1 RTR soldiers return home from Afghanistan
The soldiers returned to RAF Honington on Friday 18 May, where they were met by their families after completing a three-month tour of Helmand province.
The Squadron flag was raised to signify their return home before the soldiers formed up to march to the mess led by the pipes and drums, where they were greeted by their families.
Based in Camp Bastion, the soldiers have been responsible for delivering the reception, staging and onward integration (RSOI) training that is mandatory for all soldiers entering Afghanistan. It is the final stage of a six-month-long training package to ensure that the soldiers have the most up-to-date tactics, techniques, procedures and intelligence at their disposal.
