Exercise CAMBRIAN PATROL is the premier patrolling event of the British Army which is held in Wales and hosted by Headquarters 160th (Welsh) Brigade.
The aim of The Cambrian Patrol is to provide a challenging patrols exercise in order to enhance operational capability.
First established in 1959 the exercise sees service personnel from across the regular and reserve Armed Forces as well as teams representing other foreign nations. The teams achieved a fantastic 7 Gold Medals and 4 Silver Medals between them. The teams of 8 service personnel tackled the course based around the battlecraft syllabus. They operated tactically to complete their assigned mission whilst dealing with indigenous and opposing forces as well as the treacherous Brecon weather.
Tasks included the CBRN stand, a Recce of an Enemy position, a water crossing, Battlefield Casualty Drills, Artillery Target indication, AFV recognition, a Section Attack, and a Debrief to understand how much the patrol members had committed to memory. The impressive results allowed those service personnel to display individual skills and drills, teamwork and leadership. They have upheld the long standing tradition of Gurkha teams excelling in this most gruelling of exercises.
