Black Watch regiment is to return to Iraq

Geoff Hoon, Defence Secretary, today announced that the Black Watch regiment is to do another tour of duty in Iraq, having earlier served there during 2003, in replacement of the 1st Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders whose tour there is coming to an end. Both these Scottish regiments are tough and fearless soldiers and I wish them all a safe and speedy return.
