Army Reservists have started a full-time, five-week basic training course at Dreghorn Barracks.

The Summer Exercise Challenge is designed for new recruits to experience the reality of army life. The intensive course will see Territorial Army recruits learn both mental and practical military skills, including personal fitness, learning to handle and fire an SA80 A2 rifle, first aid, navigational skills, marching, and how to live out in the field. The residential course comes after a recruitment drive earlier this year.
