Ex SAIF SAREEA 3 ops in Oman

151 RLC Reservist 2 Lt Sarah George has recently returned from Ex SAIF SAREEA 3 attached to 1 Armoured Infantry Brigade in Oman.

Sarah spent six weeks working with the Brigade HQ, learning more about how an Armoured Infantry Brigade works at all levels.

“It was a real privilege to have the opportunity to take part in the exercise. This world leading training enabled me to fulfill my potential as an Army Reserve Officer. I look forward to meeting the other challenges that lie ahead, as I step forward ready for my next assignment,” she said.

Sarah, based at 210 Transport Squadron Army Reserve Centre in Sutton, is currently on a Lead First Full Time Reserve Service Contract after recently commissioning at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

The UK has a long and established defence relationship with Oman, with strong bonds and shared values. Ex SAIF SAREEA 3 is the largest joint exercise of its kind for 15 years underpinning one of the UK’s bilateral strategic partnerships.

The four team members who score the highest points count towards the team result, where teams tie on points, the team with the fastest time to score those points wins.

Congratulations to all who were involved and well done to 17 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC, Marchwood who were the champion male team, 162 Regiment RLC who were the champion female team and Army Drivers Northern Ireland (152 Regiment RLC) the champion Reserve team.
