Best Exercise Ever?

#1
This might have to go into Lamp and handbags, but just wanted to ask the question:

What is the best exercise you've ever been on? And why? It can be for any reason at all. Did you have about eleven tonnes of pyro, or did the CO get skiffed by the entire Coy?

Get thinking!

Brave defender was pretty good, we got a phone call 20 minutes into the exercise telling us we had a bomb planted in our barracks, bomb disposal couldnt get to us for another 4 hours so we got blown up and spent the rest of the exercise being "dead" in the bar.

Denmark; attack on a dry dock with two helis landing troops and strafing, an MTB doing the same and assault by kyacks all at the same time. Totally unrealistic and not an act of war at all but the danish home guard all jumped in their cars and f**ked off. Outstanding!

i think nicknaming the exericse's three sections gave us all fond memories....

"exercise rapid first"
"exercise sweet release"
"exercise golden shower"

looked great in after action reports.

That was a good one, remember our 'new' BOWDEN with its 'fixed' brakes rolling down the hills towards the cliffs several times.

Not forgetting the MFC's getting their location and the enemy locations mixed up. We must have wiped out 3 DWR several times.......

Ex in Germany, in Sept 99...Cant for the life of me remember the name of the ex, but my section was located in a layby just outside Meppen, and forgotten by HQ for 2 weeks....

Apart from the odd radio message that came through with taskings, we were left to fend for ourselves, down to getting water from a local building site, and buying pizza for scoff every night....

Later on the medics and sigs co located with us, and the SF on the ex came into location and trashed the siggies kit without them knowing about it...many thousands of pounds worth of damage were caused....How we laughed at their sentries.....
