Oct 01 - New Recruits Join Gibraltar Regiment

regiment recruitsTwo new recruits from the Royal Gibraltar Regiment recently passed out at the Infantry Training Centre (ITC) in Catterick.

Private Ashley Gibbins aged 17 and Private Alex McKay aged 21 have both successfully completed their 26 week Combat Infantryman Course. All infantry soldiers in the British Army must complete the course which teaches the soldier a number of skills from war-fighting tactics through to ceremonial drill. It is designed to ensure that the newly qualified solider is fully prepared to join their chosen unit and is ready for operational deployment.

Regimental Shepherd Colour Sergeant Drimmie said: “It is another proud day for the Regiment to see these two young recruits pass out. Private Gibbins and Private McKay have word hard and produced the required standard to become an infantry soldier.”

Both recruits will now head back to Gibraltar and join the Regiment in preparation for their upcoming exercise Jebel Sahara.
