Our 1st Battalion Continue to Train Ukrainian Recruits

A (Norfolk) Company are well into delivering their final course of training to recruits from the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). This course will bring the total trained by Vikings to 600, and this course will bring the nationwide number up to 10,000, a key milestone in the project.

The recruits have endured particularly gruelling weather conditions as they made the transition from civilian to soldier. This course is fast approaching its conclusion and will mark the conclusion of training in the UK for 2022.

The training teams have delivered some excellent results and were the first to deliver a new Live Firing Tactical Training package seeing the AFU progress up to pairs fire and movement after just 4.5 weeks of training. The company group looks forward to Christmas leave before looking ahead to the opportunities that 2023 will bring.
