The Germany based “Desert Rats” have finished the majority of their training in the UK and are now back at home base in Bergen-Hohne Garrison. In the first of a series of reports building up to deployment, British Forces News joined one soldier for his final preparations.

    being an ex old soldier i sometimes wonder if some of the population realise what you brave lads have to go through, thankfully the majority of us do and you have our 110% backing and wish you all well and that you all return home safe and well to your families and loved ones.
    be safe
