Squadrons from 157 (Welsh) Regiment Royal Logistic Corps took part in activities ranging from mud runs to military history walks during adventurous weekends following the return to face-to-face training.

398 Squadron based in Queensferry travelled to Hadrian’s Wall Camp in the North of England for their study weekend focusing on how terrain and weather affected Roman weapons and tactics for the era. Similarities in the methods used by the Romans in holding ground nearly 2,000 years ago, to recent operations carried out by the British Army, were highlighted.

The weekend combined fitness training and military knowledge, map reading, general interest as well as the opportunity for face-to- face training.

223 Squadron, Swansea centred their activities nearby and these included a 62-mile cycle ride, airsoft and foot golf.

Whilst 224 Squadron, based at Carmarthen and Haverfordwest, spent the weekend at a civilian outward bound centre where activities ranged from archery, a climbing wall and high ropes to kayaking, an obstacle mud run and bush craft.

All three weekends were funded in part thanks to grants from the Wales Reserves and Cadets Charitable Incorporated Organisation and achieved their aim of kick starting enthusiasm for a return to Army reserve training

All squadrons have expressed their thanks to the Wales Reserves and Cadets Charitable Incorporated Organisation for the financial contribution made.
