From Cyprus

Operation TOSCA

British soldiers serve with United Nations Forces in Cyprus (UNFICYP). These soldiers serve on an unaccompanied six-month tour of duty as UN soldiers and are responsible for maintaining the integrity of the Buffer Zone that runs between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots. The Command includes the capital Nicosia, and soldiers wear UN berets.
