The UK’s pledge of 400 more non-combat troops will raise the number in the county to 1,090. About half will deploy from the Welsh Guards in August and the remainder will follow by next February. Mrs May said the UK was leading by example to help ‘bring the stability and security that the Afghan people deserve. At the height of the war, Nato had more than 130,000 troops from 50 nations in Afghanistan. The UK had 9,500 personnel and 137 bases in Helmand alone. As of last month, there were 16,000 troops from Nato focusing on assisting the Afghan army and police.
