‘Red, White and Navy Blue’ – Fijian tribute to The Scots Guards in Afghanistan
Fijian soldiers serving in #Afghanistan perform a traditional song in tribute to their battalion, The Scots Guards. The troops were deployed to Forward Operating Base ‘Ouellette’ in the Upper Gereshk Valley of #Helmand Province in 2013 as part of 4th Mechanized Brigade – and the re-worked English version of the Fijian song includes lyrics praising ‘The Scots Guards Battalion fighting by your side’.
