UK military deaths in Afghanistan

The UK's military role in Afghanistan since 2001 has brought with it a heavy human toll. Members of the Army, RAF, Royal Marines and special forces have lost their lives in the fight against the Taliban. Here, the BBC News website offers a look at who they were and how they died.

The number of deaths stands at 453 after five British service personnel died in a helicopter crash near Kandahar air base on 26 April 2014.
