Welsh Cavalry's final Afghanistan tour will be 'success'

More than 10 years after operations in Afghanistan, the final tranche of Welsh troops will be deployed for their final combat tour of the country.

Soldiers from 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards, better known as the Welsh Cavalry, have already completed two gruelling tours, suffering the loss of two men.

Their aim is to advise and mentor Afghan National Security Forces so when they withdraw at the end of this year, the handover is complete.

Lt Col William Davies is confident of success.
