Soldiers hon­oured for Su­dan mis­sion

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - NEWS -

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.
