The cadets currently undergoing training on the Guyana Defence Force’s Standard Officer Course Number 51 successfully completed Exercise Rattrap in Watooka,Linden, last weekend.
Exercise Rattrap is an Internal Security training exercise designed to prepare troops for any internal threats, the DGF stated. The exercise culminated with a cordon and search drill.
Inspector General Colonel Trevor Bowman was on hand for the exercise and in his address at its conclusion told the troops that their training was essential as the Force always needs to be ready to respond to any internal threats at short notice.
He urged them to remain professional and congratulated them on successful completion of this final exercise before their promotion to ensigncy.
