The RHS Royal Marines CCF detachment took part in the annual Pringle Trophy competition. The competition is named after Lt. General Sir Steuart Pringle who suffered serious injuries from a booby-trapped car bomb.
The competition involved 19 Royal Marines CCF detachments and is held at the Commando Training Centre in Lympstone, Devon. It is a gruelling 48 hours that is designed to push the competitors to the limits in terms of physical stamina, determination and teamwork.
It tests 12 facets of military training including:
- Military Skills: navigation, weapon handling, camouflage and concealment, snipper stalk, battle skills and combat medicine.
- Turnout, drills and knowledge of the history of the Royal Marines
- The infamous Commando Assault Course – the same course used by the regular Royal Marines Commandos
