Photos/Video: Recruit Camp Passing Out Parade

January 23, 2016

[Updated with video] More than 60 new Bermuda Regiment soldiers marched out of the gates of Warwick Camp today [Jan 23] after taking part in the end of recruit camp passing out parade in front of gathered family and friends, under wet and windy conditions.

A total of 66 new recruits wrapped up their Recruit Camp training at the Royal Bermuda Regiment’s [RBR] Warwick Camp, with this year’s recruit camp the first one ever to host all volunteers.

The recruits are the first to train with the RBR’s new stock of SA-80 rifles – learning new parade ground drills as the rifles are shorter than the ageing Mini Rugers they have replaced.

    Tax payer money hard at waste here. Larry Burchal should write one of his opinion columns on how they should do away with the regiment and save a few million from that.

    From the first 3 comments I sense alot of sarcastic envy…I can understand now…These 66 guys have more than likely accomplished more in their lifetime than you have in yours…don’t hate, intergrate.

    Congrats to all the new soldiers. A job well done but not yet completed.
    To all the naysayers out there it’s ironic how quiet you are when we need the help of these soldiers. Continue to live in your little bubbles where you don’t need help from anyone and probably are at the same time unwilling to help others either.
    These soldiers are here to help Bermuda in times of need. Whether it be helping during natural disasters, internal control during times of civil unrest, working with the marine police, or our first line of defense in case for some reason we have to defend ourselves from terrorists or some other foreign entity.
    Hopefully we don’t need them but history has taught us that we do require them. I for one appreciate them for what they have done and will continue to do and dismiss the claims of those who bury their heads in the sand and say nothing bad will ever happen to us here.
