UK Temporary Deployment of Military Personnel

As part of the United Kingdom’s significant ongoing support of the MFO mission, which currently includes an annual financial contribution and provision of a Royal Engineer seconded to the Force Commander’s staff, the Ministry of Defence has agreed to deploy approximately 40 British Army Royal Engineers and equipment to support the MFO in carrying out urgently needed force protection work at its North Camp in the Sinai.

 

The engineers arrived on 8 March 2015 and will serve with the MFO for approximately 12 weeks. The MFO is very grateful for this timely show of support by the Ministry of Defence and Her Majesty’s Government and the provision of manpower and equipment beyond what is available to the Force’s Engineering Office.
