    07-oct-01    to    31-dec-14





    The British contribution to expelling the Taliban, securing and stablising the country, training its military and police forces and reconstruction, was carried out under Operation Herrick.

    There have been a significant number of ground forces deployments, each of approximately 6 months requiring considerable logistic support. In the early stages of the operation, the deployment was supported by HMS Trafalgar, HMS Triumph and HMS Superb, from the Silent Service.
