UK In Action: The Countess and 5 RIFLES

The Colonel-in-Chief of 5 Rifles HRH Sophie The Countess of Wessex GCBO visited 5 Rifles while they were exercising at Copehill Down, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, England. Copehill Down is a 'FIBUA' (Fighting In Built Up Areas) urban warfare and Close quarters battle training centre where exercises of the UK armed forces test there soldiers for operational awareness through scenarios which the units may come across in real time situations. 5 RIFLES provide the new Regiment with the most potent weapon in the Infantry's armoury; the Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle. Warrior has proven itself in recent conflicts and riflemen based in Paderborn will remain experts in armoured tactics working closely with tanks in an Armoured Battle Group.
