By Michael Brooke
THE soldiers of A Coy, 1RAR,
improved their deployability during
intense training as Rifle Company
Butterworth (RCB) Rotation 93 in
A Coy deployed as RCB 93 as part of
2/30 Trg Gp from February to May.
OC Maj Michael Deer said the valu-
able training, weapons qualifications and
experience they gained as RCB 93 had
thoroughly prepared his soldiers for the
challenges of operational deployment.
"These soldiers have benefited
immensely from this training period,
which has developed their individual
qualifications and collective skills," he
"The survival training we did with the
Malaysian Army in the jungle was invalu-
able as it marked the first time more than
80 per cent of my soldiers have been in
such a challenging jungle environment."
CSM WO2 Rob Maitland said train-
ing highlights included the jungle warfare
exercises in Malaysia and the urban train-
ing facility in Singapore, where the sol-
diers tested their tactics in scenarios that
included civilian and enemy role-players.
"The exercises challenged the soldiers
to operate as a combat team in varying
complex terrain while interacting with
the locals and building rapport with
Malaysian and Singaporean soldiers," he
said.As well as the challenging training
program, the A Coy soldiers also support-
ed Anzac Day ceremonies at Hellfire Pass
in Thailand, Georgetown in Malaysia,
Muara Beach in Brunei and Sandakan in
Twenty soldiers went to Hellfire Pass
to support the Anzac Day activity hosted
by Governor-General Quentin Bryce.
A Coy handed over its RCB commit-
ments to B Coy, 1RAR, on May 1, and
has returned to Lavarack Barracks.
