“ THE NEXT base for Black Watch soldiers and their families will be Belfast.
A Ministry of Defence spokesperson confirmed that the battalion will take up residence in Northern Ireland for two years when its current stay at Warminster, Wiltshire, ends.
She explained, When they finish at Warminster they will start a two-year residential posting in Belfast at the end of this year. This is not a six-month tour of duty. They will not be operative there and in effect it is the same as being anywhere else in the country. “
