A Land Rover with Weapon Mounted Installation Kit (WMIK) of The Queens Royal Lancers is shown on patrol in Maysan Province, Iraq.

Members of B Squadron of The Queens Royal Lancers, based in Catterick, North Yorkshire were deployed in Southern Iraq as part of 19 Light Brigade. They were responsible for conducting border patrols between the Iraq and Iran border in an attempt to reduce the movement of arms across the border. Just maintaining a presence in the area in order to reassure the public and deter criminal activity was also high on the agenda.
