ARMY reserves have honed their skills after returning from two weeks of training in Wales.
Reserves from 106 Regiment Royal Artillery, based at Peronne Road, in Hilsea, undertook two weeks of training in live missile firing. It follows a Ministry of Defence review that means regulars and reserves will be fully integrated for the first time and the gunners of 106 Regiment are embracing the change.
Commanding officer Lieutenant Colonel Matt Young said: ‘We had over 80 of our reserves in Wales and the training has been a resounding success, demonstrating the close working relationship we have developed with our sister regiment. The benefits of this integrated training goes without saying – both regular and reserve officers and soldiers are learning from each other.’
