Exercises at RAC Trg Reg, Catterick

Just met up with a few old boys from late 83/ early 84 intakes and the question was asked,"what was the name of the 4th week exercise??"
You know,the one where you packed all your kit in your '58 webbing and tabbed over (what seemed like) all of North Yorkshire?

I recall we were shown how to make a bivvy out of the poncho(on a 1:10 slope in the woods next to a noisey stream) and cook(ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ) :lol: compo,then run 5 miles back to camp. :x

We all remembered Ex FieldFare in the 8th week but this earlier Ex has some (very) old sweats perplexed,
Any help gratefully appreciated,
