A group of City supporters will be heading out to Afghanistan at the end of this month to fight for their country.
And they will be proudly flying the club's colours with a special flag, as pictured right.
A 122-strong Squadron named Egypt, from the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment, who recruit from the South West and London, will soon be heading to Helmand Province.
The Squadron face a six-month deployment, during which time the supporters plan to send updates on their progress, before a return at Christmas time - at which point they will parade at half-time for a first-team fixture.
Squadron Sergeant Major Pat Burgess told bcfc.co.uk: "I will send you monthly updates, operations dependant, whilst we are away with photos where possible."
