United Nations


Peacekeeping under the United Nations, or in conjunction with forces of other nations, may be a role for the Regiment in the future. In addition to Battalions’ UN tours in Cyprus and Bosnia, individuals have served on UN operations in Lebanon, Namibia, Cambodia, Western Sahara, Iraq/Kuwait and Mozambique and on other peacekeeping deployments, not with the UN, in Oman (Dhofar), Mauritius, Rhodesia/Zimbabwe and Sinai.
