On the 2nd of May 2022, Training Support Division Service personnel deployed to Sennybridge training area for our annual Exercise SURUWAT 2.
Two platoons were formed for the duration of Exercise, which took place over a week and focused on the Individual Training Requirement (ITR). ITR is newly introduced in the Army and it will replace Military Annual Training Tests. This Exercise was focused on our basic infantry skills but with additions to the programme including Close Quarter Battle training in urban areas, night and day navigation, chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear training.
We also involved some civilian support on the 4th of May where they got to experience fieldcraft skills and how the military operates. By doing so it built a stronger understanding between the military and civilian personnel within the Infantry Battle School working environment.
