As part of the Royal Armoured Corp, all jobs in S Squadron are based around the ‘sabre’ (fighting) troop of vehicles – operating in the vital Force Reconnaisance (FR) role. That means we go out and look for the enemy in our new R-WMIK land-rovers, shown in these pictures – often calling in air-strikes. Sometimes we wait for nightfall, then go quietly on foot.
S Squadron soldiers learn to drive all manner of vehicles, use the latest weapons and military radios, to enable us to conduct our primary role of formation reconassance. And we always need – and train – radio operators, medics, clerks, HGV drivers, recruiting staff, physical trainers and much more.
