Photos: Bermuda Regiment Assault Course

January 25, 2013

Yesterday [Jan 24] saw the new Bermuda Regiment recruits compete in the Bermuda Regiment Assault Course for the top section honors in this event.

In somewhat cool and windy conditions, with a little drizzle here and there, the recruits battled the course; crossing rope bridges, jumping and swinging across pits and swinging and transferring from tires hung on the end of rope to crawling through dark tunnels.

The Bermuda Regiment’s Annual Recruit Camp got underway on January 13th, with approximately 125 young men and women starting the two-week training at Warwick Camp. You can view additional coverage and photo galleries of the Recruit Camp by clicking here.

    Oh I don’t know, teamwork, ethos, physical prowess in difficult conditions, would these work in hurricane conditions??

      Spoken like a real regiment ‘soldier’… I guess football would help too? Or tug of war? How about actual hurricane cleanup practice…you know, with chainsaws and machetes? How much time is devoted to that training during recruit camp? Or in their first year?

      Pro-regiment crazies need to stop pushing hurricane cleanup as a benefit of conscription. If it was true then actual time would be spent teaching all conscripted soldiers how to use the machines, etc. As more time is spent shooting toy guns we can see where the focus really lies… Actions speak louder than words. These kids are soldiers. Not do-gooders.
