        Afghanistan

        Operation Herrick – operations to prevent Afghanistan from again becoming a safe haven for terrorists, and to build security and government institutions so that the progress of recent years becomes irreversible. We are in support of a UN mandated, NATO-led mission, the International security Assistance Force (ISAF).

        UK aims to bring about a stable, secure and self-sustainable Afghanistan with a democratic government that can maintain the rule of law, with a sustainable security environment where the population is free from coercion, a viable legitimate market economy that is increasingly able to support basic social needs.

        Land locked Afghanistan lies hundreds of miles from the nearest coast. Much of the international rebuilding strategy relies on patrols by troops, visibly enforcing the sense that the security is in place for community life to return to normal after the harsh Taleban regime. Air support is vital, ferrying the military and their kit from strongholds such as Camp Bastion, hub of operations in Helmand, to the forward operating bases and patrol bases. Logistic support ensures the military machine works smoothly, and when things go wrong top notch medical facilities will save lives. Good intelligence will help avoid bloodshed, both by monitoring insurgency and by sensitivity towards and awareness of culture and customs.

        So what has this got to do with the Royal Navy?

        The Royal Navy and the Royal Marines have been a key part of these efforts since the UK committed to the region.
