BAGHDAD — “Training the Iraqi Army is now the main focus for the British Forces in Iraq,” the Commanding Officer of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards said recently, so since their deployment to Iraq in May, training the Iraqis is exactly what the Guards have been doing.

Since May, the 1st Battalion Irish Guards have been responsible for delivering training known as ‘Mentoring, Monitoring and Training’ to the Iraqi Army at both Shaibah, south west of Basra, and in Baghdad.
