The 116-vehicle convoy, one of the biggest to ever leave Camp Bastion, was travelling a dangerous 70km to bases in the Sangin Valley via the outskirts of Gereshk and then off-road through open desert.
Captain Gareth Lowe, the Operations Officer for Camp Bastion's Close Support Logistic Regiment, said:
"We're going to fight these vehicles through no matter what the enemy throw at us."
Combat Logistic Patrols such as this supply all of the Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) and Patrol Bases across the province with medical supplies, food, water, ammunition and morale-boosting mail.
The FOBs are essential for coalition forces as they attempt to impose reconstruction and security in Helmand.
This makes the convoys a prime target for insurgents.
