“I’m pretty sure it’s what the boys kind of joined to do,” Trooper Ethan Gilles of C Squadron, SCOTS DG told Forces News.
“Get nice and dirty and that. But I think the boys are liking it!”
The aim of the drill is also to develop new troop leaders and officers give each section feedback after an attack.
The hope is lessons will be learnt and the skills better when troops are deployed.
“It’s a great chance just to step back as yourself as a troop leader - or a troop sergeant - can just step back, look at the young guys, look at the skills and drills, just help sharpen them up,” Lieutenant Tom Walpole said.
“They’ve all got it. They’ve all got it from basic training but you’ve got a chance to just step back, feedback and let them improve. Which they’re doing all day today.”
As well as taking part in a dismounted exercise in Cumbria, the regiment have also taken part in mounted drills in Dorset.
After Wessex Storm, the regiment will fly out to Poland for Operation Cabrit where it will serve alongside troops from the US, Romania and Croatia.
