The Commanding Officer of 7 Rifles, Lt Col James Gayner, briefs his Riflemen at the start of Exercise Iverna Venture, which started today. 🎿 ⛷ 🎿 “You will enjoy this week,” said the Colonel, “But this is not a ski holiday; this is adventurous training, and you will constantly challenge yourself. It’s not cruising on blue runs, it’s progressing towards ski touring, and developing that expeditionary mindset. “You should push the limits of your ability, move out of your comfort zone, and develop your courage - all of which is integral to our role as infantry soldiers.” 🏔🏔🏔 Adventurous Training (AT) is a key part of Army Reserve life. During our upcoming deployment to Cyprus on Op TOSCA, we will be doing mountain biking, scuba diving, rock climbing, abseiling, kayaking and hiking. Every January we run ”Iverna Venture”, a one-week ski-touring exercise in France. Adventurous Training opportunities are available to all our Riflemen. Get in touch now to become a part of it. 🚲 🛶 🤿 #Ski #Skiing #Rifles #SwiftAndBold #AT #AdventurousTraining
The annual 7 Rifles Christmas Carol Service is one of our favourite traditions. It’s a chance for the Battalion (which has locations across London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire) to gather together and reflect on the past 12 months, and the year to come. 🎄🎄🎄 Music was provided by our very own Waterloo Band & Bugles who, like the rest of our Riflemen, are Reservists. 🎺 🎷🥁 The bugle is a defining characteristic of The Rifles. Military bands have their origins in battle, where drums were once used to send messages and orders over the noise of fighting. Rifles regiments were light infantry, and would have been encumbered by drums whilst moving swiftly to disrupt the enemy. As such, they carried the less cumbersome bugle, which also sounded more clearly over the large distances that they covered. Bugles continue to be a part of our identity today. And they sound fantastic in a grand space like St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate, where we held our carol service. 🎄⛄️🎄 Merry Christmas from all of us at 7 Rifles! #Rifles #Band #Christmas #Music #SwiftAndBold
