1st Bn Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment
Exercises at Sennelager

During its time in Minden the Battalion became very familiar with the Ranges and Training ground at Sennelager. Many a pint of sweat was lost on the speed marches to and from the ranges, and they told us we were 'Mechanized Infantry' This page will contain a number of images that will no doubt bring back some happy but sweaty memories.
