Gurkha ARRC Support Battalion deployed as part of the 1 Signal Brigade Port Task Group to the port of Alexandroupolis, Greece, on Exercise STEADFAST JUPITER 23.
The team met the vehicle fleet that had been sent by ship from the Sea Mounting Centre, Marchwood, to prepare for a road move north. Having unloaded the vehicles from the ship, the team got to work preparing themselves and the fleet for a two-day road move. Guided by host nation military police throughout, the convoy set off north, travelling past land devastated by recent wildfires, before crossing the border into Bulgaria.
The convoy then rested for the night, hosted by the National Military University ‘Vasil Levski’ at Veliko Tarnovo, before continuing the next day to Romania, where the exercise has since continued.
