High risk adventure training in Greenland

Seven RLC soldiers serving with the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps Support Battalion (ARRC Sp Bn) have completed a High Risk & Remote (HR&R) training expedition to Greenland.

Ex TIGER ARRC was a Type 3 Overseas, Exploratory Alpine Mountaineering Adventurous Training Expedition, organised by the ARRC Sp Bn for 12 of its members. Three Alpine Mountaineering Leaders accompanied them.

WO2 Bynorth, the ARRC Sp Bn’s RAPTC QMSI and Exped Leader, said: “The Exped was a huge success. The planning, organisation and delivery of EX TIGER ARRC has a direct link to challenges, which we will face on operations.

“We succeeded in developing the leadership skills of our young soldiers, as well as enhancing their physical and mental robustness. EX TIGER ARRC achieved this in abundance.”

Cpl Rakesh, 10 QOGLR, added: “The Greenland Expedition was physically and mentally demanding. We’ve been preparing for this expedition for the last two years by completing basic summer and winter mountaineering in different parts of the UK and completing a mountain first aid course.

“Exploring Greenland has developed physical and mental robustness which will help me if I deploy on operations. It has been a once in a life time opportunity which has developed my leadership skills and enhanced me professionally as JNCO.”

Congratulations and well done to Major Jacquie Barlow, an OC within ITC Catterick, who has successfully completed her attempt to run 61 half marathons back-to-back over 61 days. Major Barlow took on this gruelling challenge with the aim of raising £5,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support after both she and her family received help from the charity when she had a tumour in 2011. She also raised money for a local school. Macmillan Cancer Support provides vital physical, financial and emotional support to cancer patients and their families at a time where the NHS is stretched.

‘STRIKE’ is a new concept in the British Army and with it, 1 Regiment RLC has faced a new challenge - how to remain agile and mobile, yet maintain C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence) with a reduced logistical footprint. 1 Regiment RLC has met this test turning to innovation with the aim of being constantly mobile yet able to maintain several lines of communication over vast distances. One possible solution is the MECC from Weatherhaven - a custom off the shelf (COTS) capability that will enhance the ‘just in time’ logistics on the modern battlefield. For more information about this potential capability, please contact Captain Alan Mcallister, RSO 1 Regiment RLC: Alan.Mcallister364@mod.gov.uk ... See MoreSee Less
