Military Skills Competition

This year, 60 teams participated in a reworked version of The RLC Military Skills Competition which put the conceptual component at the forefront, whilst retaining the arduous physical nature of the competition.

This led to some surprising results and veterans of the competition were wrong-footed by the changes, especially after the increased physicality of the 16 competition, which placed the demanding obstacle course at the end of the competition.

The teams entering the competition were diverse, with the youngest participant aged 18 years and two months and the oldest participant only a few months from their 60th birthday. The oldest combined age of a team was 241 years and the youngest 115.

The nature of the competition means that the perfect team needs to balance maturity and
knowledge with youthfulness and exuberance in order to win (the notable exception to this being the impressive performance of veterans at this year’s event, winning the Lamb trophy, the falling plate shoot and finishing second in the military knowledge test).

The overall winners of the Lamb Trophy (Best Reservist team) was the 159 Reg Veterans team. Overall winners of the Gore Trophy (Best Regular team) were 17 Port and Maritime Regt.

Congratulations to the winners of the individual events of the competition.

With the 17 competition now complete, planning is already underway for the 18 event with an equally challenging event being planned.
