  1. The aim was (Police and Prison) Training, advising (mentoring) & monitoring sadly not enough were on the ground, in all a very effective bunch of lads and lasses who put themselves out.
  2. Iraqi Correctional Service These badges were designed by UK staff
  3. Police were based in Az Zubair Police achadamy, Basra Palace, Camp Abu Naji, Nasiriyah, and As Samwah, the Prison staff were based in Basra Palace (on the Military side), Camp Abu Naji, Nasiriyah and shared the police training facility at Az Zubair (spelling as per ID card). No met police to my knowledge served in Iraq I believe that apart from the 4 prison staff only one policeman will be entitled to both the IRSM and Telic medals along with 2x DfID staff who were TA and have previously served in Iraq, The initial prison team have just completed a tour in Afganistan
  4. The Police teams worked under the CPA and then transfered to the FCO, The prison teams were embeded with the military under a FRAGO in 2004 , but in late 2005 came under the FCO, all should get the Iraq Reconstruction Service Medal, 4 HM Prison Officers have been en given the Op Telic (Iraq Medal).
