1 RWF arrived in Cyprus as part of UNFICYP, 1966
In January 1964, because on unrest between Greeks and Turks, Nicosia was divided between
the two communities. In March the UN established a force — UNFICYP — to observe a
cease-fire between the factions. It included a British battalion. 1 RWF, which was stationed
in BAOR, was sent to Cyprus for a successful six-month tour from April to November 1966.
