Relief in Place (RiP) training takes place in Afghanistan
9,000 service people, up to 250 every day will have to go through the process known as Reception, Staging and Onward Integration. RSOI is the final stage of preparation that can last more than a year and brings troops right up to date with the current level of threat and how best to confront it.
Arguably the best-trained military, British forces can’t afford complacency, especially when soldiering in one of the world’s prime danger zones. In this video, by Geoff Meade of BFBS, he follows some of the latest troops as they go through this training at Camp Bastion.
