Royal Anglian Regiment heading for home

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.
