Lincolnshire soldiers patrol Cyprus buffer zone

We join the Royal Lancers on patrol

Lincolnshire Reporter joined the Royal Lancers on patrol in the buffer zone in Cyprus.

The Lancers recruit from across Lincolnshire and they are attached to the UN to maintain peace between the Republic of Cyprus and the Turkish controlled north of the island.

The ceasefire has been put in place in 1974 and British forces are stationed near Nicosia to ensure peaceful cooperation.

We met Captain Charlie Henson, originally from Lincoln, and Corporal McNeil from Grantham.
