Indian Army emerges as the best patrolling force in the World

The Indian Army has emerged the best patrolling force in the world with a team from the Gorkha Rifles regiment winning an international competition  called as the Olympics of Patrolling. 

The 4th Battalion of the 9 Gorkha Rifles regiment from the Bhopal-based 21 'Sudharshan Chakra' Corps participated in the annual Cambrian Patrol Competition at Wales in England last month.
It emerged the gold medal winner beating 100 teams, including 14 teams from national armies of foreign countries.

Exercise Cambrian Patrol, run by 160 (Wales) Brigade, is both physically and mentally demanding and is a highlight in the Army’s training calendar. More than a third of this year's entrants failed to finish, highlighting its reputation as one of the sternest tests a modern-day soldier can face.

The six gold medals were awarded to:
1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, SP Company
Household Cavalry Regiment, B Squadron
2nd Battalion The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, Recce Platoon, Team 1
The King’s Royal Hussars, Team 2
9 Gorkha Rifles, (India)
2 Engineer Regiment (New Zealand)
