A Royal Visit to the 1st Battalion in Cyprus

The Battalion had the honour of hosting TRH The Earl and Countess of Wessex when he visited the Sovereign Base Areas last month. Despite a busy visit for HRH the Countess of Wessex found time to visit Viking families to learn about the experiences of families posted overseas with their spouses.

He visited A (Norfolk) Company who were training on Dhekelia Ranges. After meeting with soldiers HRH was given the opportunity to fire the Glock 17 pistol and it turns out that he is a pretty good shot!
