Beccy's skills to benefit soldiers.

BRITISH forces are leaving Iraq, but a Geordie soldier is among those staying to help train the Iraqi Army.

Corporal Rebecca Jane Davidson of The Kings Royal Hussars, has been helping to train up the native recruits of 12 Mechanized Brigade, who are to assume independent control when all Allied forces have left.

Rebecca, 24, from Newcastle, has recently been in Camp Buehring in Kuwait working in the Casualty Simulation Training Tent to improve soldiers' medical knowledge.

Rebecca and her fellow soldiers have spent the last few weeks using the American facilities at Camp Buehring. This included a refresher on how to deal with so-called roadside bombs and firing skills.

"It is my fourth time serving in Iraq and I've really noticed the changes since my first deployment," she said.
