Over 20 years, tens of thousands of British military personnel have served in Afghanistan.

455 of them were killed in the conflict, and seven thousand injured.

A recent study said that British soldiers were twice as likely to be killed as US troops, mainly because they were patrolling in the highly dangerous Helmand Province.

Sky News’ James Matthews has spoken to some of them.
