Soldiers from Catterick based 32 Engineer Regiment, Royal Engineers teach Kenyan Engineers how to prepare explosive charges during EX ASKARI STORM in Kenya, say the MoD.
According to a release:
“The Royal Engineers delivered a field lesson to the Kenyan Defense Force (KDF) troops on how the charge is constructed and safely detonated. The KDF then put this into practice by building their own confidence charges (comprising of a burning fuse and plastic explosives – PE8).
The Royal Engineers were on hand to give advice throughout, again demonstrating the close working relationship between the British Army and African partner nations.”
The Royal Engineers provides military engineering and other technical support to the British Armed Forces and is headed by the Chief Royal Engineer. The Regimental Headquarters and the Royal School of Military Engineering are in Chatham in Kent, England. The corps is divided into several regiments, barracked at various places in the United Kingdom and around the world.
