Ex KUKHURI CAMINHAR - Type 3 Adventurous Training in Portugal.

14 members of 10 QOGLR have successfully returned from a week’s adventurous training - mountaineering in southern Portugal.

The exped consisted of 5 days walking, averaging 20km per day. The terrain was a great mixture of coastal routes in the sun, canal paths in the rain, muddy trails through woods and on one day and endless track through sand dunes.

Sgt Yubaraj of Comms Troop was the expedition leader and delivered a very professional package. This is the first time on record that a UK Defence adventurous training package has taken place in this region of Portugal, making the achievement all the more impressive.

Thanks to Sgt Yam, 6 soldiers from 10 QOGLR completed the Summer Mountain Foundation qualification and are now ready to further pursue future activities as a means of developing their leadership potential while delivering similar expeditions for the benefit of other soldiers in the Regiment.

This expedition embodied the key tenets of adventure training. It incorporated moral, physical and conceptual elements. NCOs led a group of both novices and experienced personnel in often difficult conditions, working as a team, learning new skills and building relationships that are essential to the cohesion of the Unit. Messing on a nightly basis tested the cooking abilities of some very talented and enthusiastic amateurs and the standard of food was superb.

Once again 10 QOGLR has been bold in aspiration and the investment has paid dividends. A great example of what can be achieved by dedicated individuals. Special thanks go to the instructors, Sgt Yam, Sgt Yubaraj and Cpl Kul, and finally to Cpl Arjun for his sterling work as the 2IC and as the expedition G4 powerhouse.
