The three soldiers killed in Helmand Province came from The Royal Highland Fusiliers, 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (commonly referred to as 2 SCOTS).
According to the Ministry of Defence's Army website, around 350 soldiers from 2 SCOTS deployed to Afghanistan throughout March for a six-month operational tour.
The battalion, which is based in Penicuik near Edinburgh, were sent over to take on a variety of roles, including advising and training the Afghan National Security Forces, as part of Task Force Helmand.
Family, friends and colleagues have been remembering three British soldiers killed in a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.
The deaths of three British soldiers in one incident in Afghanistan still has the power to shock us. And yet it is no surprise.
