On 7 October 2001, US and British armed forces had invaded Afghanistan to oust the Taliban regime which harboured al-Qaeda. Operation HERRICK was the codename for all British military operations in Afghanistan in support of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and the US-led Operation ENDURING FREEDOM.

Operation HERRICK ended in October 2014 when British operations ceased in Afghanistan following NATO officially declaring an end to its 13-year long combat role in Afghanistan.
