Deaths in Helmand

The deaths yesterday of six British servicemen in Helmand remind us that we are still at war in Afghanistan.  The incident brings to over 400 the number of British deaths in that conflict, which is now in its 11th year. 

Only last night I read this post, The Luckiest Man in Helmand, an impressive piece from last year about one man who stood on an explosive device – and survived.
