On the week of the 16th of May 2011 the Army hosted an event called 'Battle Back'. Individuals who have been injured whilst on operations have been sent out to Gibraltar to train for the up coming event of swimming around Jersey. This was running along side the annual training camp of the Armies Swimming, open water swimming and Water Polo. The training took place with the individuals having to complete a 2 hour continuos swimming test to prove that they would be up to the future challenge.
