British troops from B Squadron of the Light Dragoons deployed on Operation CABRIT as part of the NATO eFP shield have recently concluded a four-day coordinated patrol competition at the Bemowo Piskie Training Area in Poland.

Part of multinational Battle Group Poland (BG POL), one of four mutually supporting formations forming a defensive shield from Estonia in the east through Latvia and Lithuania to Poland in the west, the British troops are operationally deployed alongside American, Croatian and Romanian allies serving with the Polish 15th Mechanised Brigade. The British personnel serving with BG POL are equipped with Supacat JACKAL 4×4 and COYOTE 6×6 vehicles and operate as a Reconnaissance Troop for the US 2nd Cavalry Regiment.
