Conflict Overview
Sierra Leone is a former British colony in West Africa, close to the equator, with an area of 71,740 square kilometres. In 2000, the country had been consumed by a civil war since 1991. The West Side Boys were a militia group who had been involved in the civil war. They were initially loyal to the Revolutionary United Front (RUF), the rebel army opposing the government. They later fought for the government, against the RUF, and were involved in at least one operation directed by British officers in exchange for weapons and medical supplies. But the West Side Boys refused to integrate into the reconstituted Sierra Leone Army and began operating as bandits. British forces were deployed to Sierra Leone in May 2000, initially for a non-combatant evacuation operation under the codename Operation Palliser, in which they were tasked with evacuating foreign nationals—particularly those from the United Kingdom, other Commonwealth countries, and others for whom the British government had accepted consular responsibility. As part of the mission, British forces secured Sierra Leone's main airport, Lungi. Having secured Freetown and Lungi, and evacuated the foreign nationals who wished to leave, the initial forces left and were replaced by a "Short Term Training Team" (STTT), whose mission was to train and rebuild the Sierra Leone Army.

Recent Events
On 25 August 2000, a patrol from 1 R IRISH left their base in Waterloo to visit Jordanian peacekeepers attached to the United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL). Over lunch, they were informed that the West Side Boys had begun to disarm, despite their initial reluctance, and the company commander decided to take the patrol to investigate en route back to their base. The patrol turned off the main road onto a dirt track that led to the village of Mbanza Nyogo, where the West Side Boys were based. As they approached the camp, they were surrounded by a large group of West Side Boys, who used an anti-aircraft gun mounted on a Ural truck to block the patrol's route. Company commander dismounted his vehicle, then resisted an attempt to grab his rifle and was beaten.
