British Soldiers Train The Trainers

The British Army has started its ceremonial drills training with a group of warrant officers at the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) Engineers Nabuni Camp at Nabua.

RFMF chief of staff, Lieutenant-Colonel Sitiveni Qiliho, said the two officers from the Bristish Army, WO1 Neil Lawrie and  Colour Sergeant Luke Walton, would be in charge of the two-week training.

He said the RFMF warrant officers were just going through the basics of ceremonial drills with the help of the British soldiers.

“We’re fortunate to get such help and we’re thankful to the British government for its help,” Lieutenant-Colonel Qiliho said.

He said there were also courses on the psychology of leadership and media operations.

The Acting British High Commissioner, Daniel Salter, on the first day, said these courses represented the initial stages in UK-Fiji military cooperation since the election in September.

Lieutenant-Colonel Qiliho said the trainees would pass on what they had learned to those under their command after completing the two-week training.
