"Peacekeeping duties in British Guiana. A patrol of 1st Lancashire Fusiliers set out in canoes from their base in the jungle, watched by a group of Amer-Indian children from the bank. The Lancashire Fusiliers spent nine months in British Guiana in 1965. The deployment was the result of repeated civil unrest and violence caused by ethnic conflict between the African and Asian populations during the early 1960s."
