As a high readiness Reaction Force, the 1st Battalion works incredibly hard to maintain its fighting power and cohesion. To do this we train hard and often, taking every opportunity to travel internationally in search of the most rewarding and challenging training environments.

Recent training destinations include:

  • Kenya – safari country
  • Canada – rolling prairie land perfect for Armoured Infantry
  • United Arab Emirates
  • The Falklands – South Atlantic British Territory
  • Latvia – the Baltic state on the doorstep of Russia
  • Germany – our home in the centre of Europe
