Troops from 3 SCOTS, The Black Watch, are currently in Cyprus serving with the United Nations as part of Operation Tosca.
 
The Battalion arrived in March and will stay on the island until October this year.  
 
Forces TV's Simon Newton went with them on a night patrol, as they searched for people illegally entering the buffer zone.
 
It's part of the UK's commitment to the UN peacekeeping force in the country, which has been policing the buffer-zone between Turkish and Greek Cypriot forces for over 50 years.
