According to Philippine Army, the 8-man Scout Ranger team successfully accomplished its mission by performing various military operations along the rugged Cambrian Mountains of Mid-Wales, with loads of logistics and minimal food and water for 51 sleepless hours.

Ex CP is an annual international military exercise hosted by Headquarters 160th (Welsh) Brigade, British Army. It is the British Army’s premier patrolling event that provides mission-focused and scenario-based exercise in order to enhance each participating unit’s operational capabilities.

Around 130 teams from different countries participated in this year’s Ex CP.

“The Philippine Army recognizes the achievement of our Scout Rangers, which is a manifestation of the perseverance and toughness of the Filipino soldier. Their display of character in the international scene reflects our nation’s aspirations to become a truly world-class Army,” Philippine Army Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Ramon P. Zagala said.
