RNLI warning to Respect the Water during ‘deadliest’ month at the south west coast
Devon Troops Are Making a Difference
Heart's been catching up with Plymouth's 3 commando Brigade who say they're making significant headway in Afghanistan.
They left the city for a 6 month tour of duty in March and believe improvements are being made.
The Army commandos along with Royal marines from Plymouth have recently helped to lead one of Afghanistan's largest operations called Omid Haft, which claimed the lives of two marines.
Marine Sam Alexander who was awarded the Military Cross and lived in Plymouth, and Lieutenant Ollie Augustin who both served with Bickleigh's 42 Commando were killed when an IED exploded - their bodies were flown back to the UK last Thursday.
But despite their deaths troops from Devon are continuing to clear out Taliban insurgents.
Spokesman for Task Force Helmand attached to 3 commando brigade Lieutenant Colonel Tim Purbrick tells Heart they will continue to make it a safer place for the people of Afghanistan.
