UK Experience in Sierra Leone

By 3rd Brigade February 13, 2019

The 3rd Brigade Warfighter Seminar was held on 08 March 2018. The theme of the seminar was 'Regional force projection - Experiences and Challenges for the Ready Brigade'.

In this presentation, Brigadier (UK Retd) Richard Iron discusses Britain's intervention in Sierra Leone's civil war (2000-2002). The successful campaign helped to bring about a peaceful resolution to a particularly brutal conflict.
