Soldiers from the Royal Bermuda Regiment will carry out a blank firing exercise this weekend.

The RBR’s newest troops will be out in the field at Hog Bay Park in Sandys on Saturday and Sunday to build on the basic soldiering skills they were taught in this summer’s Recruit Camp.

An RBR spokesman said: “This exercise will involve the firing of blank ammunition and the use of pyrotechnics such as flares.”

He added that people in the area could expect to be hear weapons firing and they should not be alarmed.

Warning signs will be posted at the park entrance during the exercise.

But the spokesman said: “There will be no restriction on access to the park, although the public are asked to stay well clear of any soldiers on the exercise.”
