Capt (MAA) A Jessey RAPTC & WO2 (QMSI) C Williams RAPTC
LWC and 11 SFA Bde, in conjunction with the Ukrainian Armed Forces,
developed a
Leadership Course for the Ukrainian soldiers, aimed at filling gaps in physical training instruction and equipping soldiers with the skills needed to lead their troops effectively. The training program includes essential elements such as preparation and recovery from physical activity, injury prevention methods, and functional movement patterns based on our own APTS training methodology.
The RAPTC Instructors, including SSgts Ben Gilmore, Kirsty Price, ‘Qas’ Qasim, Rich Ingles, Yvette Kemp, and Sgt Plumridge, should be commended for their dedication and professionalism in delivering the training programme. Overall, this program exemplifies how sharing knowledge and expertise can lead to stronger military capabilities and enhanced physical performance for soldiers in the field.
In other news, WO2 (QMSI) Daniel Bishop RAPTC left the Army and the QMSI PD role after an outstanding 4-year tenure. The South East Team has been gifted
  Command and
Capt (MAA) Jessey RAPTC
with a worthy replacement in the form of WO2 (QMSI) Chris Williams RAPTC. Despite a 9-month gap in the post, Chris has hit the ground running and has already made a significant impact in all
WO2 (QMSI) Williams RAPTC
areas of PD in the Region. After 20 years in the RAPTC, Chris brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role. His arrival has been warmly received by all members of the South East PD Team, who have praised his professionalism and expertise.
This is a significant moment as it marks the final MBS article where 11 SFA Bde and the HQ South East are considered as a single organisation. The two organisations will soon separate, symbolising a change in their respective paths. From 1 April 2023, the SO3 and WO PD will continue to support the Firmbase and will operate within the HQ South East while gradually cutting formal ties with the Bde.
