We are grateful to all locally-employed staff working for the United Kingdom Armed Forces who have contributed to the success of our operations in Afghanistan. There are arrangements in place to compensate all those who have suffered significant injury during the course of their employment and the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and whilst working with us in Afghanistan.
