Afghanistan - Another Loss
A soldier from 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards was killed today in Afghanistan.
He was serving as part of Combined Force Nahr-e-Saraj (South) [formerly known as Battle Group Babaji], and died from wounds received as a result of an explosion in the Babaji area of Nahr-e-Saraj in central Helmand.
He was involved in operations as part of Operation MOSHTARAK to clear insurgents to the south west of Patrol Base 4, so that a checkpoint could be built and a road laid through the area.
The death toll of our troops in this war now stands at 262.
