Sacrifice in Helmand

The MoD has announced the news that a further five soldiers, all from the 2nd Battalion The Rifles, were killed yesterday near Sangin. Three soldiers had already been reported killed in Helmand earlier in the day.

15 soldiers have now died in the last ten days and many have been seriously wounded.

These men died to prevent terrorism reaching the streets of Britain. We all owe them and their families an immense debt.
