On the 19th-20th March 2016 I completed L98a2 rifle training. We had first parade and split up into all the activities that were going on during the weekend including L98a2 rifle training, Bronze and Silver DofE planning and first class training. I attended both training days to learn the L98a2 rifle training. We were able to learn all the drills needed for the rifle including stoppage drills, NSP’s and the function check. I think that I mostly need to improve on habits that I have developed from the No8 rifle. I really enjoyed learning and understanding how the body position and breathing affects the accuracy of the weapon. We watched an L98a2 rifle WHT example, which showed us what was needed in order to complete our WHT’s. It was difficult to remember all the drills needed for the WHT, but it was an extremely successful training event that everyone enjoyed taking part in.
