    Default Caithness boys off to Iraq on Wednesday - Sign Here

    They were reporting this morning on Radio Scotland that the 51st Highland were flying out to Iraq on Wednesday to perform duties in Basra.

    The 51st Highland are made up reserve soldiers from all over the Highlands and includes some Caithness boys.

    Given the difficult situation in Iraq at the moment may they all get through their 6 month tour safely.

    Please sign this post to show your support for them.

    Default Good luck to the boys.....

    I know a couple of the lads that are going - one of them from Caithness and the other from the Isle of Lewis. Ian MacDonald is the fourth guy from the right on the picture below and due to his being called up for Iraq couldn't compete in the male voice quartet at the National Mod this year - he was off getting ready for the tour of duty. I got the privellege of taking his place - thanks Ian! Good luck to you and the rest of the gang from Caithness and the rest of the Highlands and Islands.

    When I did my tour in 2003 we managed a couple of days R&R in Kuwait (only an hour south of Basra) but wasted a lot of time by not knowing our way around. Now that I've been here 3 years, I'd be glad to host any of the lads if they get the chance to come down, or recommend best shopping etc.!
    PM me for details.

    A speedy safe return to all the boys. May their familys take strength from the support of all those around who wish them well and may the next six months pass as quickly and uneventfully as possible.
