Soldiers honoured for Sudan mission
Dozens of soldiers at Kinloss Barracks went on parade yesterday to celebrate their contribution to a UN peacekeeping mission in Africa.
About 100 members of the base’s 34 Field Squadron were presented with medals in a ceremony in front of top brass.
Proud family members wiped away tears as they saw loved ones getting an honour to display.
The troops returned from South Sudan last month, following a fourmonth deployment to the war-ravaged country as part of Operation Trenton.
During that time, the men built the groundworks for a new hospital while providing it with power, fresh water pipes and drainage to protect against flooding.
