"This has been a famous victory for the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and one which should go down in the regiment's history."


TANKS crewed by the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards destroyed an entire squadron of 14 Iraqi tanks and wiped out four key infantry positions before dawn yesterday.
It was Britain's biggest tank battle since the second world war and just one squadron of the Dragoon Guards was needed to eliminate the enemy.
After the battle, close to Basra, a military source at the British HQ in Qatar said: "It was 14-0."
