Pak Army won silver at UK’s Exercise Cambrian Patrol military contest.
Details regarding the competition and the Pak Army contingent were provided by Colonel Taimur Rahat, Military and Air Attaché at the Pakistan High Commission in London.
He noted that the competition, which has been contested in the UK since 1959, is regarded as the most difficult NATO patrolling competition internationally.
113 teams in all, including one from India, took part in the competition. He gave the team’s achievements credit to Major Osama, the team manager, and Major Haseeb, the observer.
Colonel Taimur claims that the units engage in exercises over a 60-kilometer radius that last 48 hours. To put soldiers mental and physical fortitude to the test, along with their endurance, participants deal with explosive materials and encounter battle scenarios.
Lieutenant Owais Usman led the Pakistani contingent, which consisted of soldiers from the 67th Punjab regiment.
This is the second time in recent months that the Pakistan Army has won first place in an international military contest.
Pakistan finished second for the third year in a row in the “Pace Sticking Competition,” an international military exercise competition held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in June of this year.
