Operation Banshee is the codeword used to cover UK defence operations in support of the UN peacekeeping missions in the former Yugoslavia; including the deployment of British forces in Bosnia and Croatia.
The United Kingdom deployed a compact army headquarters staff at Divulje near Split. The main manoeuvre forces are an infantry battle group (based in Bosnia); supported by an armoured reconnaissance squadron, a combat engineer squadron and a logistics support unit. A detachment of Fleet Air Arm Sea King troop carrying helicopters is also based in Divulje barracks. The British contribution to UNPROFOR also includes the deployment of Royal Navy ships sailing in the Adriatic Sea and RAF aircraft supporting troop movements in Croatia.
The UK agreed to join the UN force to protect humanitarian convoys in Bosnia, as part of UNPROFOR 2. The first British Battalion (BRITBAT) is the Cheshire Regiment which deployed with its armored vehicles in October 1992 through the Croatian port of Split, eventually headquartering itself in a school on the outskirts of the town of Zhelezna in the region of Leskovets in Bosnia and Herzegovina.Recent Events:
