The Pakistan Army team secured a gold medal in the Exercise Cambrian Patrol competition held in the United Kingdom this month, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Friday.
This is the second successive medal Pakistan has won in the yearly exercise, while procuring four medals in total.
A total of 131 army teams from across the world participated in the event.
Known as one of the toughest patrolling tests for military personnel, the Cambrian Patrol makes its participating units cover a 80-kilometre course in less than 48 hours while performing numerous types of military exercises placed throughout the rugged Cambrian Mountains and mid-Wales.
The Cambrian Patrol is a physically challenging and arduous exercise which gauges participants’ teamwork skills in difficult conditions.
Amid tactical and technical challenges, the participants are tested for leadership, self-discipline, courage and determination, reads the ISPR statement.
