Teaching Drill To Personnel From Around The World

Feb 16, 2017, 11:42 AM

A drill course with the largest component of overseas students ever has been taking place in Catterick.

The class included personnel from Sierra Leone, Malta, Canada and Hong Kong – together making up almost 20% of the students.

The increased number of foreign students on this course reflects a recent surge in interest in the Army School of Ceremonial.

The MOD has a quota for overseas students, but with a shortfall of UK personnel attending some of the courses here due to operational commitments, the School do have capacity to take more.
