    The soldiers, who were attached to 1st Battalion The Royal Welsh Battlegroup, were serving as part Combined Force Burma when they were killed in an indirect fire attack on Forward Operating Base Ouellette, in the northern part of Nahr-e Saraj district.

    Spokesman for Task Force Helmand, Major Ian Lawrence, said:

    "Sadly, I must report that today that two soldiers from the Royal Logistic Corps, attached to 1st Battalion The Royal Welsh Battlegroup, were killed in an indirect fire attack on their base.

    "The thoughts and condolences of everyone serving in the Combined Force are with their families and friends."
