Soldiers from the Indian Army have been practising their skills alongside British Army troops on Salisbury Plain.

Around 120 soldiers from the Indian Army's 14th Battalion, The Dogra Regiment, took part in Exercise Ajeya Warrior.

The soldiers spent two weeks on the exercise with B Company, 1st Battalion The Rifles - learning about counter-IED skills and casualty evacuation drills, as well as offensive and defensive missions. 

The training culminated in a 72-hour joint counter-insurgency exercise.

The exercise takes place twice a year and is held in both countries.

Colonel Amit Saini, Commanding Officer of 14th Battalion, said: "It is a very proud moment for me to be leading 14th Battalion of the Dogra Regiment on this exercise with the 1st Battalion The Rifles.

"We are here to learn the best practises of the British Army and to showcase our own expertise and hone our skills so that in the future we can operate jointly under the wider UN mandate and achieve great success wherever we are operating."
