The three-day competition involved teams of soldiers selected from five battalions that make up the Brigade, showing expertise and speed in Weapons Handling, Map Reading, Obstacle Crossing and Drill.
Presenting a trophy to the winners of the competition at the Mambila Barracks in Abuja, the Guards Brigade Commander, Brigadier-General Yusuf, said the competition is an important aspect of military training, aimed at enhancing physical fitness and combat-readiness of troops. He said it is also to instil team spirit, self-confidence, leadership, endurance, cooperation and comradeship among troops.
Commanding Officer of 102 Battalion, Colonel S.S Tilawan, praised the Brigade Commander’s push for new steps that have made the competition a fierce contest. He explained that the Brigade Commander randomly selects soldiers from the nominal roll of the battalions, which make up the team that competes on behalf of each battalion.
