3 YORKS company returns from Afghanistan

5 Sep 12

Soldiers from Corunna Company, 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment (3 YORKS), returned to Warminster on Tuesday, 4 September, after a six-month deployment to Afghanistan.

The company formed part of 12th Mechanized Brigade in Helmand province, Afghanistan, on Operation HERRICK 16.

Corunna Company was the Armoured Infantry Company (with Warrior armoured vehicles) working as part of the King's Royal Hussars Battle Group.

A total of 98 members of the company were welcomed home to Battlesbury Barracks in Warminster, Wiltshire, by several hundred waiting family members and friends and colleagues from 3 YORKS....

Much more of my favourite story here.
