US Delayed UK Withdrawal from Basrah

The withdrawal of British troops from Basra was delayed by five months due to political pressure from the US, a UK military commander in Iraq has said.

During their final months at the base, 11 British soldiers were killed and 62 were injured.
The relocation of troops from Al Faw was also delayed on T7, 9/12 had moved 90% of their kit out when the direction from above changed and they had to reoccupy the base, some not very happy campers after that...
