Oxford UOTC Training In Gibraltar

in Culture Insight/Features

Members of Oxford University Officers’ Training Corps (UOTC) recently visited Gibraltar to take part in Exercise Barbary Warrior 2.

It is an Army Reserve unit that recruits exclusively from Oxford, Oxford Brookes, Reading, Cirencester and Gloucestershire Universities.  

One hundred and thirty members of the Unit participated in the exercise at Buffadero Training Camp and in the MOD tunnels within The Rock.  They also undertook a range of challenging pursuits around the peninsular.

At the start of the exercise, Oxford UOTC’s Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Ben Walters said, “We are delighted to be in Gibraltar and are very grateful for our warm reception.  My team and I are looking forward to the opportunity to develop some of the British Army’s future leaders in this unique training location.”
