The Regiment has just completed a challenging yet hugely rewarding two week period during which we took part in four different exercises simultaneously, working alongside regular army colleagues from a number of different Signal Regiments. Before heading out on the various exercises we had a refresher on our basic close combat skills and weapon training and tested our mental skills with a leadership development programme.
We used our newest communications system, Falcon, as part of Exercise Flying Falcon working with 21 Signal Regiment. This has been the biggest exercise the Royal Signals has held in over ten years and took place on Salisbury Plain. Falcon is a broadband network that provides army commanders with the ability to communicate using a range of different voice and data systems in a combat environment.
We also linked back to the main regimental location at York using Falcon to provide voice and data communications between the troops on Exercise Flying Falcon and those in York who were on a UK Operations exercise.
At the same time 40 Squadron from Northern Ireland and parts of 51 Squadron from Edinburgh headed to Denmark to take part in Exercise Viking Star using the Bowman combat net radio system. Our troops were there to provide communications for the Army’s logistics specialists on a multi-national refuelling exercise.
Not to be outdone Dundee based 2 Squadron were on Exercise Mercury Rising in Arbroath using their specialist skills to provide long range communications in support of the Royal Navy.
We’ve been so busy and spread so far and wide that often the best way to get an overview of what everyone has been up to has been to follow the regimental facebook and twitter feeds.
