Coming to the end of their specialist training programme, 2nd Battalion The Rifles are just about off to keep the peace in Kosovo. Trouble out there is expected on or around 15th June when the new independent nation officially comes into existence and conflict is anticipated between the country's rival Serbian and Albanian communities. 2 Rifles will be in the middle keeping the peace, saving lives and ensuring that the new Kosovo nation, whose independence is supported by the UK and the EU, has a hopeful beginning.
2 Rifles, good luck and stay safe!
