Throughout the weekend, units from the Royal Logistics Corps (151 Regiment and 210 Logistics Squadron), with 157 Detachment Army Cadet Force and others, ran a series of exercises and events, simulating Fighting In Built Up Areas (FIBUA).

Our cadets role-played civilians, casualties and non-combatants in houses and streets, coming under military action.  They adopted their roles with enthusiasm and vigour, throughout day and night operations, attacks and defensive operations.

PC Jojo Duffy, Merton VPC Leader said, "This has been an amazing weekend which has really pushed our cadets, but everyone has stepped up and given 100%.  I'm very proud of them."

Head Cadet, Amy, said, "This is completely different to anything we've done before, but we have learnt a lot.  It's been great to see how our army colleagues operate and see the kit they use.  I even got medically evacuated to a helicopter whilst role-playing an injured civilian!

This was a great joint exercise between our two uniformed services, and one we definitely look forward to repeating again."
