The band of the Adjutant General's Corps playing to the people of Pristina at the opening ceremony for the city theatre, 1999

Photograph by Sgt David John Miles, 4 Armoured Brigade photographer under the direction of Media Ops, Kosovo, 1999.

During the late 1990s the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) waged a campaign of separatist violence against the Yugoslav security forces and ethnic Serbs from Kosovo which precipitated a Yugoslav military crackdown. The latter operation caused the displacement of thousands of ethnic Albanians, which in turn led to the Kosovo War (1998-1999) and military intervention by The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). British troops deployed there with Kosovo Force (KFOR).

One of 48 colour photographs taken by Sgt David John Miles, a reservist who volunteered to serve with 4 Armoured Brigade as Brigade photographer under the direction of Media Ops, Kosovo, 1999.
