Soldiers from 2 Yorks prepare to head back to Afghanistan

Some 400 soldiers have marched from their barracks at Catterick Garrison on a four-mile route to Richmond Castle today (26/07/17) to receive a blessing before deploying to Afghanistan later this week.

The soldiers from the 2nd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment based at Somme Barracks will take part in two four-month operational tours on Operation TORAL 5 - the first time they have deployed as a regiment to Afghanistan since 2012. Their last deployment was to Iraq in 2014.
