British Army soldiers conducted operation Southern Beast this week in the Kandahar Province of Afghanistan. Led by the Parachute Regiment of the Third Battalion, the troops worked to create conditions for a permanent NATO presence, intended to bolster the Afghan National Government's fight against the Taliban.
