Exercise Lightening Strike - Royal Signals

By Alicia Sykes, on Sunday 23rd February 2014. Categorised in Army.
The Log Race
Just got back from Ex. Lightening Strike with the Royal Signals at Blandford Camp, where there were 20 UOTC and DTUS teams competing in a series of stands and a final race. It was a great opportunity to see what the different units within the Signals do.

One of the more memorable stands was  the 216 Parachute Signal Squadron - the log run. For our team this was a bit more of a challenge as there were only 6 of us, as opposed to the other teams that had 10.
The Final Race

  There was a final race with a series of challenges, including dismantling and reassembling an SA80, sending messages with flags, downing part of a ration pack (no joke), and a lot of running.
