Troops from the 3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment Battle Group conducted Exercise Grand Prix 5 in Kenya.
The troops spent approximately five weeks in Kenya which culminated in a week-long Final Training Exercise (FTX) in an area north of Nanyuki from 18-23 February 2010.
The week began with troops conducting hearts and minds patrols through villages populated by local Kenyans and finished with a Battle Group size attack on another village.
The exercise is known as Hybrid Foundation Training, providing them with generic skills, however, the training will also help in their preparation for returning to Afghanistan in September 2010 on Op Herrick 13.
