    Indian Army team wins gold at World patrol meet

    New Delhi, Nov 7, (IANS)

    8)
    The 4th Battalion of the 9 Gorkha Rifles regiment from the Bhopal-based 21 'Sudharshan Chakra' Corps participated in the annual Cambrian Patrol Competition at Wales in England last month.

    It emerged the gold medal winner beating 100 teams, including 14 teams from national armies of foreign countries.

    The Southern Army Commander, Lt. Gen. A.K. Singh, felicitated the team during his visit to the Rajasthan desert where the battalion has its headquarters, an army officer said here.

    The Cambrian Patrol Competition is a widely-renowned military event conducted by the British Army and is held under adverse battle conditions in arduous jungle and mountain terrain.

    "The aim of the Cambrian Patrol is to provide a challenging patrol exercise in order to develop operational capability as a mission oriented tactical team," the officer said.

    The performance of the team hinges around leadership, team work, physical fitness, mental robustness and above all, tactical skills involving reconnaissance techniques, navigation, first aid and casualty evacuation.

    The British Army has conducted Cambrian Patrol Competition for the last 40 years, where participants include teams from foreign armies.

    Naturally! Managing to protect the nation despite:

    - Two deranged nuclear-armed sick entities as neighbors.
    - An enemy loving, nation-conspiring and terrorist-welcoming government.
    - No national security policy on the forefront.

    INDIAN ARMY ROCKS! JAI HIND!

    I conclude that a Pakistani hacked the internet sites so that they could "win" again this year.

    We defeated their AJK regiment this year:

    Indian Army team bags gold at world patrolling competition

    Beating hundreds of soldiers from major armies of the world, an Indian Army team dethroned a rival battalion from Pakistan to bag the coveted Gold Medal at an international Patrolling competition considered as the Olympics for this event.

    The 4th Battalion of the 9 Gorkha Rifles regiment has won the annual Cambrian Patrol Competition at Wales in England last month, Army officials said here today.

    "We emerged victorious in the competition where 14 teams including Pakistan Army's 9 Azad Kashmir Battalion was also participating," Indian team leader Major T B Chhettri said here.

    He was speaking to reporters after Army Chief Gen V K Singh felicitated the Gorkha team.

    This is the first time since 2005, when Indian started taking part in the event, that its teams have won the Gold Medal.

    Last year, Pakistan Army had fielded its Special Services Group (SSG) unit which won the event.
