The British Army has made another significant move towards its final withdrawal from Afghanistan and has now pulled back to controlling just two bases. U.K. troops are now only operating at their Afghanistan headquarters at Camp Bastion and an observation post called Sterga 2, both of which are in Helmand. At the height of the war, more than 10,000 soldiers controlled 137 bases.
