Exercise PACIFIC KUKRI 22 – Australia for 2 RGR

14th March 2022

Training in the hard environment of the bush in Australia

Members of B (Gallipoli) Company, The Royal Gurkha Rifles are currently deployed on Exercise PACIFIC KUKRI 22 in Shoalwater Bay Training Area, Australia.

Over the course of three weeks, they will conduct live firing and blank firing training in the challenging Australian bush environment in order to prepare for their upcoming transition to 16 Air Assault Brigade Combat Team in the UK.

The soldiers have overcome significant adversity to deliver Exercise PACIFIC KUKRI, which has repeatedly been delayed and then again delayed due to heavy flooding in the Queensland area.

However, now that they are there, all the troops are working extremely hard to ensure the exercise is a success. The Commanding Officer, Regimenta Sergeant Major and the Operations Officer recently visited the exercise to oversee training and validate the Company for their future role when the Battalion moves back to the UK in the Summer.
