Exercise JUNGLE YATRA, Basic Core Combat Skills

94 Mat Troop, 1 Squadron deployed on Exercise JUNGLE YATRA on 27th September 2020.

The exercise was coordinated by Sergeant Dinesh and administered by Corporal Bhim, under the guidance of Lieutenant McNaughton.

The main aim of the exercise was to conduct refresh training on basic fieldcraft skills and drills under the Basic Core Combat Skills syllabus.

The secondary aim was to educate and empower some of the Regiment’s Lance Corporals and senior Privates who were looking to promote to Corporal and Lance Corporal respectively in the near future.

The Exercise JUNGLE YATRA was a great success for those involved.  This training was also very useful in preparing soldiers for their future career courses under the Army Leadership Development Programme and developing Gurkhas for their future roles in the British Army.
