So the elections had already taken place. So they'd taken place in late May 1993. And I'm talking really in around June, July, August period was where I was at now. So we arrived in country just after the elections. So we were the last group to serve in Cambodia there, which was going to be 12 months, but it only ended up being six months… So we were given notice that the UN was withdrawing from Cambodia. So in around end of September, October, we packed up our detachment there and headed back to Phnom Penh for final clean-up of approximately a week or two.
