☘️Happy St Patrick's Day! • In the absence of the annual #StPatricksDay Parade with the @IrishGuards (as the majority of the Regiment are on deployment overseas ), of which The Duke of Cambridge has been Colonel since 2011, we're sharing more on where the Irish Guards will be working this St Patrick's Day: • The Irish Guards, known affectionately throughout the Army as 'the Micks', is an Irish regiment which has proven its loyalty and grit on many tough operations. • Number 1 Company is currently deployed in South Sudan for four months on Operation Trenton, providing security to the Royal Engineers undertaking construction projects as part of the @unitednations mission there, including teaching basic skills that empower the locals and will help them continue to improve their lives long after the deployment finishes. • Meanwhile in Iraq the remainder (and vast majority of the Battalion) of the Micks are deployed on Operation Shader. They are currently on a six-month tour focused on training security forces across multiple locations in Iraq and further north in the Kurdish Region. • A truly diverse Regiment, the Irish Guards draws from soldiers all over the British Isles, Ireland and across the Commonwealth. As the Regiment's motto challenges, 'Quis Separabit' — 'Who Shall Separate Us?' • All photos © Irish Guards
