Service medals for peacekeeping in Cyprus

RLC troops deployed on Op TOSCA have been awarded service medals in recognition of the peacekeeping mission in Cyprus.

Among those awarded were soldiers from 27 Regiment RLC who are nearing the end of their six month tour patrolling the buffer zone in Nicosia.

For many of the soldiers, it has been their first overseas tour and their first operational medal.

Troops were handed their medals at the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) Winter Medals Parade by the Commander of UN Forces in Cyprus.

Over 1000 personnel from different nations make up the UN force in Cyprus on what is one of the world’s longest running peacekeeping missions.
