Have we met?

By DeusExMacintosh


British forces have begun their official withdrawal from Iraq after the UK’s commander in the south of the country handed over to a US general.

Major General Andy Salmon has transferred authority for what will become Multi-National Division South to US Major General Michael Oates. The generals’ pennants were raised and lowered in a handover ceremony.

Most of Britain’s 4,000 troops will leave by 31 May, the official end-of-combat date. About 400 will stay after that, either in HQ roles or to train the Iraq Navy.
