Army medic delivers Iraq baby.
Lance Corporal Shelagh Tobin, 24, from Swansea, helped by Lance Corporal Craig Hall and an interpreter, delivered a seven- pound Iraqi baby in Ad Dayr at about 9.45pm.
The father grinned with delight as his child was wrapped in towels and cradled by Lance Corporal Tobin, who was still dressed in her camouflage army uniform and helmet. The birth was a pleasant diversion for the medical team - who are used to treating shrapnel and landmine injuries.
Both mother and baby were healthy.
