Remembrance service held in Afghanistan
The Duke of York and the Defence Secretary Philip Hammond joined service personnel on operations for a remembrance service at Camp Bastion.
The Duke and Mr Hammond arrived in Afghanistan last night in time to participate in this morning’s remembrance ceremony at Camp Bastion, the main UK operating base in Helmand province.
As the nation paid its respects to the fallen of the 2 world wars and other conflicts, Prince Andrew and Mr Hammond laid a wreath at Bastion’s memorial to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan since 2001
