Request for Information on the UK contribution to IFOR/SFOR in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1995-2000

The request was successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I am a research student at the University of Stirling and I am researching the role of UK troops in Bosnia, throughout the deployment of IFOR and SFOR and the UK's contribution to stabilisation. My study concentrates on the period 1995-2000.
I would be very grateful if you would let me have the following information:

1. The number of UK troops deployed under NATO in each of the years 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000.
2. the cost to the UK defence budget for this deployment in each of the above years.

This information is intended to form part of a thesis which will explore Civil Military Cooperation in Bosnia during those years and the UK's part in making Bosnia the country it is today.

My details are:

Dear SPO RWE-Secretariat (MULTIUSER),

Hi there

Thanks so much for your efforts on this so far. My dissertation has to be submitted on 20th November at 0900hrs. Is there any way you could get me what you have by next Wednesday? Otherwise all your work so far will be in vain and I'll have a big hole in my writing. Anything you have would be better than nothing.

Thanks very much indeed for your help.

Yours sincerely,

Martine McNee

Dear SPO RWE-Secretariat (MULTIUSER),

Hi there

My dissertation is due in tomorrow morning and I haven't had anything from the FOI that I put in in September. I'm begging, can anyone give me anything by this afternoon? I really need to put some kind of context into it. I have waited patiently for over two months. I understand that covid is making things difficult and that you have all worked hard to get me something, but unless I get it by this afternoon, and have time to rewrite that part of my dissertation, it will all jave been a waste of time.

Thank you fo anything you can give me.

Yours sincerely,

Martine McNee
