The Falklands Islands offer some of the best training opportunities in the world for the army; working closely with colleagues in the Navy and RAF the ranges offer the chance to see how the land, sea, air battle is really fought.
Fast jet low level strafing runs and artillery support from war ships soften enemy positions ready for the infantry to close with and destroy ‘enemy’ bunker positions. The noise of the explosions and the supporting fire make the ranges the closest to combat the troops had seen. A truly awesome training experience.
It wasn’t only work though, The Queens Company were able to conduct battle field studies from the Falkland’s conflict, walking the ground bringing to life the battles of the 80’s. Go karting, climbing and mountain biking allowed the guys to relax, whilst penguin, dolphin and whale watching provided an authentic and unique Falklands experience.
