Thirty years ago this month the Royal Artillery was at the heart of the United Kingdom's contribution to the multinational coalition Operation Desert Shield to drive Saddam Hussein's Iraqi troops out of Kuwait.
A thunderous air assault on military, economic and communications targets was launched on 16th January 1991 and just over a month later, on 24th February, the ground forces commenced their offensive.
Within four days the operation was complete, Iraqi forces were comprehensively defeated and Kuwait was liberated.
