Ex. Lombardia - Italian Raid Commando

By Alicia Sykes, on Tuesday 3rd June 2014. Categorised in Army.
Exercise Lombarida was is an 18 hour patrolling exercise in Italy, where teams of 4 navigate between check points and complete tasks at stands placed along the course. Navigation is a key part of the exercise, as we started at 23:00 hrs, the first 6 hours was completed in the dark.

There was also the requirement of a minimum 10kg weight not including food and water, after adding 5 litres of water, and 2kg of rations it was considerably over 10kg.
