  • RTE : Exercise Slaney, 02/03/08 Army reserves train in Co Wicklow

    Around 400 members of the Reserve Defence Forces took part in a major training exercise in the Wicklow mountains today.

    The exercise took place in the Glen of Imaal

    The troops were supported by armoured vehicles and heavy artillery.

    Engineers, signals, medics, military police and logistics were also involved in the exercise.

    An army spokesperson said the aim of the exercise was to raise the level of performance of reserve troops with a view to deploying them in operations alongside permanent members of the Defence Forces.

    "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

    was it integrated or no integrated troop used i dont think there is 400 integrated troops in training but i could be wrong
    Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

              so what you are saying that this exercise is in no way

              related to the retirement of a certain person
              Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
              Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
              The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
              The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
              The best lack all conviction, while the worst
              Are full of passionate intensity.

                Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
                Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
                Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
                Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

                      we were told to bring our own webbing if we had it because there was only a limited supply of pool issue plce. that's why anyone i asked had 58 pattern on...

                            Good PR though for the RDF! your average member of Joe Public would have thought it looked good. Were the Gunners involved at all ?

                              All units in 2ERDF were involved (apart from 2 AD Bty (but they are under RDFTA/DFTC)).
