THIS week Observer reporter Greg Miles travelled to Cyprus for an army training exercise with the men and women of 58 Battery of the 12th Regiment Royal Artillery.
He spent three action-packed days being given an insight into the world of tactical training exercises in the Army.
Exercise Lion Star was held to prepare the soldiers for a tour of Afghanistan next March.
