Scottish Reserve soldiers hone Military Skills in Norfolk.
Scottish Reserve soldiers from 52nd Lowland, 6th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (6 SCOTS) have been honing their military skills on annual camp in Norfolk this week.
Around 75 soldiers, drawn from 6 SCOTS Headquarters in Glasgow and sub-units in Ayr, Bathgate, Dumfries, Edinburgh and Galashiels, took part in the two week camp which was held at Stanford Training Area.
The soldiers carry out various training exercises which are designed to test core military skills such as marksmanship, leadership, teamwork and fitness. The camp culminates in a final exercise where the soldiers put their training into practise through simulated scenarios. The final exercise will include urban operations and a helicopter assault.
Major Rob Muir, Executive Officer of 6 SCOTS said: “This exercise is a great foundation for training deployments abroad next year with our Regular counterparts. The urban operations facilities at Stanford are superb and provide a very testing environment for us.
The UK Reserve Forces play a vital part in our nation’s defence and the role of the Reserve has changed. The British Army now has regular and reserve soldiers working alongside one another to create a fully integrated capability.
Reserve personnel are serving alongside their regular Army counterparts with the aim that, by 2020, reservists will be fully integrated with the regular Army and routinely deploy as part of all military operations.”

Training Along Side Mexican Marines: Exercise Dawn Blitz
Along with New Zealanders, we got to training Mexican Marines (Marinas) from their special forces/commandos/regular units on MOUT (Military Operations in Urban Terrain). These guys have to be the most motivated, squared away dudes I’ve ever worked with. The language barrier was a pain but thank goodness for our divers military. Very awesome to see these guys in action.
