The UK Ministry of Defence yesterday released a package of images of Army Reserves training last week on Exercise YORKSHIRE STRIKE.
Released, 15 February 2021: 4 YORKS, an Army Reserve infantry unit based across Yorkshire, conducted Ex YORKSHIRE STRIKE serials on 10 Feb 21. This training package included cross-country driving, rifle ranges, and tactical skills as part of a Potential Junior Non-Commissioned Officer (PJNCO) course.
The exercise was conducted across three counties – County Durham, Cumbria, and North Yorkshire. It also involved personnel from 4 LANCS and the QOY. Training like this demonstrates the Army’s commitment to developing its soldiers and continuing to ensure operational effectiveness during these difficult times.
All training was conducted according to COVID-19 protocols. Personnel were bubbled together, with external visitors wearing masks and remaining socially distanced at all times. Travel was only conducted when it was deemed to be essential according to UK Government guidance.
