British soldiers engage Taliban as bodies of six fallen comrades are flown back from Afghanistan
As the bodies of the six men killed in the bomb attack on a Warrior armoured vehicle were flown back to Britain, soldiers who had fought alongside them took part in an offensive against insurgents.
Members of 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment were part of a 1,000-strong British force which supported an Afghan-led operation to purge the Taliban heartland around Gereshk over the weekend.
Many were close friends of the men who lost their lives and all were determined toremember their fallen colleagues.
