    Hundreds of Royal Marines have been involved in a massive operation across uncharted Afghan territory attacking the Taliban.

    More than 600 members of the Taunton-based 40 Commando fought alongside other troops in the area around Sapwan Kala in the Upper Sangin Valley of the Helmand Province, southern Afghanistan.

    Royal Marines destroy Taliban Heroin Factory


    Royal Marines capture Taliban Territory

  13. Can you imagine Bin Laden getting an email from a marine saying that he has won the Afghanistan lottery, all he needs to do is send his current address and contact details. Also if he could include his bank account details, his mothers maiden name, favourite colour and name of his first pet
