They're going, no word on who yet...
From the link:

"The soldiers, from 2nd Battalion, The Rifles, will be deployed to Kosovo from the end of May for one month to help Nato with peacekeeping activities".

I think they must be copying this forward straight from Parliament (there was only one paragraph when I found it).

Good grief - how many spare bods do we have left? I assume that people are getting a decent amount of time off in between tours?
I suppose that the Legion of Frontiersmen could be pressed into service...

2 Rifles deploy as Spearhead Lead Element AGAIN.

Time spent deployed as SLE is conveniently ignored when plotting availability for Ops.

This is not an issue if not deployed, but 2 Rifles seem to have had more than their fair share of SLE trips.

While we are at it might as well go have a crack at those iranians, oh and syrians, not to mention those pesky chinese, since its our "responsability".

How about they try fixing their own country before they sort other peoples out.

Des Browne has been seen lurking outside the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Apparently 4x4 wheelchairs are cheaper than frigates and can be bought off the shelf...
