‘No one else in Bermuda delivers this’

All island residents aged between 18 and 50 are encouraged to join the Royal Bermuda Regiment.

The organisation will host one recruitment drive this year and can accept up to 60 new soldiers, who will go through primary training from February 12 to 24.

Major Dwight Robinson, the RBR’s regimental career management officer, said: “This initial training covers basic soldiering and other aspects of military life.

“Recruits will be challenged physically and mentally but also rewarded in equal measure.”

Michael Weeks, the Minister of National Security, also urges people to sign up and said that the RBR’s contributions to Bermuda have stood the test of time.

“To be an RBR soldier means more than just wearing the uniform. It represents a dignified commitment to personal development that often results in lasting relationships and opens the door to higher learning and professional development,” Mr Weeks said.

Those who sign up could travel overseas for training, receive non-military educational support and establish lifelong friendships.

Recruits do not have to limit themselves to the battlefield. They could be musicians, electricians, motor mechanics, chefs and much more within the RBR.

Major Robinson added: “Over the length of a career, we provide our people with training, new experiences, real responsibility and continuous challenge, which fosters growth and increased capability. No one else in Bermuda delivers this.”

Interested recruits can learn more on the RBR’s website, call 238 1045 or visit the Warwick Camp base, on South Road. The registration deadline is January 26.
