Saturday morning saw 12 aspiring Gibraltar Regiment Officers take the chance to experience first hand, the trials that they would come across were they to join the Regiment as an Officer.
The weekend was crammed with activities aimed at giving a snapshot of life as an Officer in the RG including intelligence tests, personal presentations, command tasks, fitness tests and a taste of Regimental life at a formal Regimental Dinner.

A number of complaints have been received by the RGP regarding emails from online payment company Paypal. The emails refer to a payment made for an item to a random Paypal account.
The public has been informed that is a phishing scam email being sent in order to obtain account and password details.
In response to the GSD’s recent statement calling on the administration to confirm its position on therapies subsidised by the GHA, a Government statement has claimed that the party is seriously lacking in experienced MPs on the front bench and has scored another own goal.
A statement goes on to note, ‘In questioning the aim of the Government to provide additional services, the GSD takes a dog in the manger approach and suggests that when it comes to such services, it must be all or nothing. This clearly indicates that the GSD would wish to deprive all those benefiting from oxygen therapy and using NaPro technology just because the Government does not offer every possible form of alternative treatment. What a narrow-minded and inconsiderate approach from Mrs Ellul-Hammond.
