The Brigade Reconnaissance Force, made up of soldiers and officers from the Light Dragoons, pushed into the area of Shorokay as part of Operation DAAS (which means ‘scythe’ in Dari) to search a complex bunker system.

As Lance Corporal Richard Brown explained, Op DAAS began in the air and once on the ground the soldiers made their way into the insurgent stronghold:

“When we were dropped off at dawn by American Osprey aircraft, the other two Troops pushed to the east as we pushed onto the high ground in the north, providing intimate support to the others,” he said.
