The soldiers, who had only been in Afghanistan for a few weeks, were hit by a blast about 25 miles north of Helmand's capital, Lashkar Gah, on 6th March.
Ammunition on board the Warrior ignited, causing a fierce fire to burn for several hours.
The six soldiers are believed to have been killed after their armoured vehicle was caught in an explosion in southern Afghanistan on 6 March 2012.
Defence Secretary responds to Warrior enquiries after 6 British soldiers died in an explosion while on patrol in one of the vehicles. Five of the six were from the 3rd Battalion Yorkshire Regiment. They are expected to be named later today.
