The Royal Gibraltar Regiment held its first Insight Weekend of the year at Devil’s Tower Camp (DTC) and Buffadero Training Centre (BTC). The weekend was run over two days with an overnight stay to provide potential recruits with a better understanding of the Regiment, and what it could offer them.
The event started kicked off on the Friday when 26 potential recruits turned up at Devil’s Tower Camp. The group consisted of three females and 23 males, the youngest being 15 years and 8 months and the oldest being 42 years old.
Despite the weather all attendees enjoyed the weekend which included indoor activities and presentations as well as outdoor activities including a Night Stalk, a live shoot, a FIBUA Attack and paintball.
The common comment from those attending was that the weekend was interesting and that it was a great way of informing them of what the Regiment has to offer as a Reserve (part-time) or Regular (full-time) soldier.
