With the 3rd Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment preparing for its annual training exercise the Bn deployed to STANTA to blow out to cobwebs and practice platoon level skills.
With a late evening arrival, there was time for battle prep and a quick heads down before the first platoon stepped off on the Platoon advanced to contact lane. With the sun barely up the lead section was contacted and everyone broke into their processes, commanders issuing orders, and soldiers cutting around the battlefield.
With the first serial complete there was time for a hot debrief before the platoon was stepping off for the next serial, as the next platoon began their advance. With the distance complete and temperature rising all platoons had made it to their RV point and the harbour was being set up in preparation for further deliberate operations.
