Troops from the 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment are returning to the UK from Afghanistan today.
They have been based in Kabul on a six month deployment. It's part of Operation TORAL, a NATO mission to provide support and advice to the Afghan government. Unlike previous operations in Helmand, the mission is not about direct combat, but providing security and training.
Servicemen and women from RAF Marham have returned home following their final operation in Afghanistan.
The force has been there since July 2009 and in that time has played an important role in coalition combat missions.
The final ground troops pulled out of Camp Bastion in Helmand province last month.

Tornado GR4s from RAF Marham in Norfolk have left Afghanistan and are heading back to the UK after more than five years of operations in the country.
The fast jets, from 31 Squadron based at RAF Marham flew out of Kandahar airfield early this morning having flown their final missions.
Aircrew and ground crew from the squadron have provided vital support to NATO efforts in the country since they took over from RAF Harriers in June 2009.
During its time in Afghanistan, the Tornado GR4 has provided vital information about enemy activity on the ground, using the Litening III and RAPTOR reconnaissance pods to spot potential hazards such as roadside bombs.
The jets have also provided close air support deterring enemy forces by flying low and fast over their location or striking important targets with precision when necessary to do so.
The Tornado remains the fast jet workhorse of the RAF and has performed superbly over many years in Afghanistan, supplying life saving intelligence and precision weapons in support of our mission there.
The whole Tornado force should be proud or their work and I pay tribute to their professionalism.
Air and ground crew will now make their way via RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus, to RAF Marham where they will be welcomed home by friends and family.
More than 300 Libyan soldiers being trained at at Bassingbourn barracks near Cambridge will be sent home early, the MOD has confirmed.
It follows attacks on three women in Cambridge last Sunday. Two Libyan soldiers have pleaded guilty to assault and another is facing charges.
The majority of recruits have responded positively to the training despite the ongoing political uncertainty in Libya but there have been disciplinary issues.
Training was initially expected to last until the end of November but we have agreed with the Libyan Government that it is best for all involved to bring forward the training completion date. The recruits will be returning to Libya in the coming days.
On Monday, the MP for South Cambridgeshire Andrew Lansley put pressure on the MOD to remove the troops early.
