Hybrid Hybrid Event

For nine years, BBC Wales journalist Gareth Jones followed the Queen’s Dragoon Guards – The Welsh Cavalry – as they took on insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now he is coming to BRLSI to give a first-hand account of an ambush in which the Queen’s Dragoon Guards were attacked by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2009.

In what promises to be a fascinating talk, he explores British military involvement in the country since the first Anglo-Afghan War of 1839, with a particular focus on the Welsh soldiers who have fought – and often died – during that period.
