    Just a quick note. The first picture from the Columbia Mall shootings is not of MSP. The State Team (as their tac guys are known) wear the OD green tactical uniforms. The guys in blue are more than likely Howard County Tactical. I am a cop about about an hour north of where this happened. The guys with Police on the back of their tac uniforms are either Howard or Montgomery County Tac who also responded. They also had ATF, City of Laurel, MD police, FBI, and the National Park Police helicopter in the area. The response was helped by the fact that the Annual Polar Bear Plunge was cancelled due to terrible weather conditions allowing the State Police to get a lot of resources there very quickly.

    General Sir Peter Wall, Chief of the General Staff, has carried out the first field promotion in the British Army since 1953, during a visit to troops undertaking a training mission in Mali.

    General Wall accompanied the head of the French Army, General Bertrand Ract-Madoux, to witness soldiers from 1 Rifles delivering infantry training to their Malian counterparts.


    Rifleman Gigar Das (31) was conducting a lesson in marksmanship principles, which hugely impressed both generals. The Chief of the General Staff was astounded to see that the soldier was a Rifleman. After consulting briefly with Gigar Das’s company commander he decided to promote him there and then.


    Shortly afterwards, in front of the entire EU Training Team, Rifleman Das was presented with his Lance Corporal’s *****e by the head of the French Army.

    Default UK Forces support American troops in major operation





    British troops have provided a protective screen in the desert to allow American forces to safely redeploy from bases in northern Helmand, allowing an 180-vehicle convoy to travel 25 miles without attack.
    Soldiers from The Highlanders, 4th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (4 SCOTS) deployed with the multi-national Manoeuvre Battlegroup to create a safe route.
    Leaving Gereshk, the battlegroup moved north under blue skies and in biting temperatures. They remained out of camp for several days as the US prepared their departure from Forward Operating Bases Shukvani, Faizal and Eredvi.
    Commander of the Manoeuvre Battlegroup, Commanding Officer of The Highlanders, Lieutenant Colonel James Roddis, said: “This operation provided us with an invaluable rehearsal for our own re-deployment. We will bring that confidence of having completed this operation to future manoeuvres.”

    Default Leaders of the future put to the test








    3rd Regiment Royal Horse Artillery and 26 Regiment Royal Artillery together delivered a Potential Non-Commissioned Officers (PNCO) and Junior Non-Commissioned Officers (JNCO) cadre amidst a busy time for both regiments.

    The three-week course delivered lessons on leadership, duties of a JNCO, the Values and Standards of the British Army. And all were able to rediscover their soldiering skills by spending quality time in the field, getting back to basics.


    Following the gruelling course including a final exercise at Sennelager training centre, Germany, a Passing Off parade was held to celebrate finishing the course and promotions.
