The Second Battalion, The Royal Gurkha Rifles, CSS Company directed by Sergeant Shyam Limbu, undertook a collective training exercise in the jungle of Brunei.

This involved Gurkhas from the Quartermaster’s department, Signals Platoon and The Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment, Catering team and the Gurkha Staff and Personnel Support all taking part in revising their basic jungle survival drills.

Living and working in Brunei means that all Soldiers and Officers based in the Brunei Garrison must be able to operate and survive in the Jungle. The British Army in Brunei comprises an infantry battalion of Gurkhas and an Army Air Corps Flight of Bell 212 helicopters. The tropical climate and terrain are well suited to jungle training and the Jungle Warfare Division run courses for all members of the British Army.
