Soldiers from the Queen's Dragoon Guards, known as the Welsh Cavalry, joined forces with their Afghan counterparts to mount the operation to strike at insurgents who had been firing at the headquarters of 2nd Battalion The Mercian Regiment (2 MERCIAN) in the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand province.
The operation resulted in the seizure of a stash of munitions and the 82mm recoilless rifle, designed to smash through tank armour.
