On Exercise 'Rock Warrior'

This week you may have noticed ‘warfare’ scenes at different times in different locations around Gibraltar.

The Royal Gibraltar Regiment has carried out a series of exercises as part of Exercise Rock Warrior to select potential Corporals for the regiment. The exercises has been testing all aspects of soldiering, day and night.

Yesterday morning the soldiers were on Eastern Beach carrying out so gruelling exercises after swimming onto the beach, in a non-stop exercise they tested to the limit.

Rock Warrior saw them on the upper Rock and in the Naval Base.

There will also be some blank firing in the area of Parson’s Lodge in the early hours of this morning. No inconvenience to the public is expected.
