After a great deal of consideration, the Final 18 team members have been selected.
The team spent a week in the Ciarngorms, based out of the MOD’s Rothiemurchus Lodge, gaining experience of living and moving round safely in snow-clad mountains.
The project team got together in mid-Wales for a combination of hill walking and brain storming.
The majority of the team were able to spend a week on the water at the start of August 2014, some for the first time. The remaining novices will complete the training at the earliest opportunity.
A successful weekend for 36 volunteers was held at INDEFATIGABLE 27 – 29 June.
