The British Commander of Task Force Helmand, Brigadier Doug Chalmers, joined Governor Mangal at his compound in central Lashkar Gah in his final week in post. The pair exchanged gifts before walking into the provincial capital to enjoy lunch in a newly-opened kebab restaurant. Afterwards they visited a local market.

Gulab Mangal has been the Governor of Helmand province since March 2008 and is being replaced as part of a reshuffle of local government ordered by President Hamid Karzai.
