Last week, the first set of Irish troops were supposed to be deployed to the Golan Heights to join the UNDOF (United Nations Disengagement Observer Force) mission, however  it was delayed until the end of September.

The 12 officers and 103 soldiers of various ranks will be taking part in the UNDOF mission with troops from Fiji, India and the Philippines.

The stamps are out today and cost 60c.
