168 TROOP WEEKLY DIARY
For the most part Week 6 was fairly steady, if such a thing is possible at CTC. Filled with a variety of PT sessions from long runs to IMF and with the most intense swimming relay in Corps history, Week 6 did not disappoint.
The majority of the week was taken up with map reading lectures to assist 168 Tp with navigational techniques. All skills taught throughout the week were new to most and the learning curve was quite steep, but thanks to some hands on practise everyone managed to grasp the concept.
The main event of the week was our first experience of live firing. This was delivered via the training team and the Combat Marksmanship Team. The end result was a great experience and a best grouping size of 11mm. Although only at 25m this was still fairly impressive.
Overall, a great week that prepared us for the upcoming Exercise Marshall Star.
