The Battalion returned from operations in Afghanistan in 2010 (Op HERRICK 11-B Company attached to 3rd Battalion,The Rifles,and Op Herrick 12-Waterloo Company attached to 3rd Battalion,the Duke of Lancaster Regiment Battle Group and the remainder of the Battalion the Brigade Advisor Group(BAG)).
The Battalion(B Company) provided Her Majesty's Royal Guard at Balmoral in July 2010 and throughout 2011 under went its Adaptive Foundation Training year. For this the Battalion reverted back to its light infantry role and fine tuned its hybrid war fighting capabilities. This training year culminated with a Battalion level exercise in Scotland and a six week overseas Battle Group level deployment to Kenya on Exercise ASKARI THUNDER.
At the beginning of 2012 the Battalion commenced Mission Specific Training for its forthcoming tour to Afghanistan on Operation HERRICK 17. It will again deploy in the role of the Brigade Advisory Group and as part of 4th Mechanised Brigade. The deployment is due to conclude in early April 2013. The tour promises to be rewarding and fulfilling as we move closer to the Afghan Security Forces taking full responsibility of their own security.
Also in 2013 the Battalion has again been given the honour of providing the Her Majesty's Royal guard at Balmoral. Throughout this period there will again be an emphasis on participating in as many sporting events and adventurous training opportunities as possible.
