http://www.chronicle.gi/headlines_details.php?id=16359 LUCKY ESCAPE FOR SIX BRITISH MILITARY PERSONNEL by Brian Reyes Six British military personnel had a lucky escape yesterday after a navy speedboat hit the jetty in Rosia Bay during a high-speed amphibious exercise. The Gibraltar Squadron rigid hull inflatable boat [RHIB] was part of an exercise to train soldiers in beach landing techniques. Four UK-based Territorial Army soldiers and two Gibraltar Squadron crewmen were transferred by local emergency services to the Princess Royal Medical Centre in Devil's Tower Camp. They were checked by doctors and released a short while later with little more than superficial injuries. An investigation is now under way into the cause of the incident, which happened at around 8am yesterday morning. The investigation is being conducted by two naval officers from Headquarters British Forces (Gibraltar). All outcomes remained open yesterday, including the possibility of mechanical failure or human error. The exercise in amphibious landing techniques formed part of the wider annual Marble Tor deployment, in which TA units from the UK spend time on the Rock training both on land and at sea. The training program is designed to challenge the soldiers with realistic scenarios aimed at testing their skills and stamina. A military spokesman yesterday praised the response from the local emergency services and the Gibraltar Services Police. "They were incredibly quick on the scene," he said.
