Week Eight Story
This week Rifles 5 has focused on the basics of soldiering. With some good time out on the ranges, PT and drill.
The drill is especially important now as we get ready for the week 10 'passing off the square'. This is an inspection and a drill test. Once passed the Riflemen are allowed to wear their green berets and silver bugle cap badges. It is a huge milestone and all Riflemen wear their beret with pride.
Ranges are a crucial part of training, we have been very lucky to get good weather which allows us to focus on shooting well. The focus this week has been on firing from different positions at different ranges to allow adaptability in the future.
Look forward to week eight
Next week we travel to Halton for adventurous training. This is a large part of army life where we can learn to push ourselves and get out of our comfort zones.
