Raider Volume 6 Issue 4 Synopsis

BY THE NUMBERS!

It was with great sadness that I learnt that Howe Barracks in Canterbury is to close when 5 SCOTS leave. These barracks are local to me and I’ve known them ever since I was a child as I used to walk past them on the way to school. Seeing the soldiers on parade, going about their duties, and getting ready for exercise or deployment each day always gave me a sense of pride, and the open days there each year certainly fuelled the military interest of a youngster.

Howe Barracks has been the home to 5 SCOTS for the last ten years, but now under the manpower cuts the slimmed down Battalion is returning to Scotland to take up mainly ceremonial duties.

This, of course, is part of a much wider picture. Think on this; if the 82,000 figure that the Government is looking for in relation to our standing army is achieved then they could all pretty much fit into the Millennium Dome or an international football stadium! Now that is a sobering thought.

On a lighter note, we’ve really gone to town this month in Raider with some great interviews with some pretty special people. John Hurth of the TYR Group joins us with an overview of his world leading Combat Tracking Courses, and at last I managed to nail down the guys at Kryptek to take an up close and personal look at the camouflage pattern that everyone is raving about!

With our usual mix of reports, news and reviews this is an issue that folk will be talking of for some time to come, and once again the Raider Team have excelled themselves in what they’ve brought to the table. As always, I hope there will be something here that will illuminate and entertain, and believe me there is much, much more to come!

Great Military Magazine

This is a great military mag, my only complaint is the amount of gear reviews, but for coverage of British and Western military, predominately European Army's this mag is the best there is. Reviewed 01 October 2018
