Gothic Dragon: Welsh Warriors on large-scale live-firing exercise in Germany

1st Battalion the Royal Welsh have travelled to the training facility near Paderborn in Germany, the Army’s largest in continental Europe.

Preparations have begun for NATO's multinational battlegroup in Estonia next year, with a five-week-long live firing exercise - Gothic Dragon.

1st Battalion the Royal Welsh, the 'Welsh Warriors', will be leading the mission and have been conducting exercises at the Army's newly named NATO Forward Holding Base Sennelager near Paderborn in Germany. 

The Sennelager training facility is the Army’s largest in continental Europe, offering the huge space required for the armoured infantry battlegroup to successfully operate.
