The top-ranking UK military officer in the US said yesterday the Royal Bermuda Regiment boosted to the country’s regional profile and was an invaluable resource for natural disasters at home and abroad.
The island’s armed service is better equipped than ever to deal with natural disasters, Governor John Rankin said yesterday. Mr Rankin added that the latest recruits to the RBR had joined an organisation that will play an increasingly vital role in humanitarian relief at home and in the wider region.
The island’s newest soldiers joined up today (SUN) for the first of this year’s two Recruit Camps. A total of 25 men and women were issued their uniforms and kit as they prepare for a tough two weeks of new style basic training in Recruit Camp Alpha.
