Ground Defence Training

Ground Defence Training takes in the basics of field craft techniques which the Royal Air Force Regiment Field Squadrons and Force Protection units use to protect RAF units from the enemy.

These techniques involve camouflage and concealment, movement in the field, small team tactics and escape and evasion and will teach you the ability to survive in the field tactically for periods of two to three days.

The Squadron holds a Ground Defence Training Camp at Crowborough once a year and carries out regular exercises to practice these techniques.
