Members of the Light Dragoons who were recently deployed to Poland took part in a training exercise testing new skills

Soldiers from C Squadron, Light Dragoons, were recently in Poland on Operation CABRIT, as part of NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence.

This is a capability development training exercise where British soldiers working alongside industry partners test a new range of capabilities for Light Cavalry whilst acting as enemy forces for US and Romanian partners, testing one another in a peer on peer setting.

They worked alongside soldiers from the U.S, Romania, Croatia and Poland, taking part in various exercises and drills.
