The Kenya Defence Force have completed their training with instructors from the British Army’s Infantry Battle School.

Based in Brecon, Wales, the Infantry Battle School (IBS) is part of the School of Infantry which delivers competent and confident commanders by running command and leadership training, infantry tactics training, weapons training, and live firing range qualifications.

IBS also provides specialist training teams to assist foreign forces in their development.

It was in this capacity that the instructors deployed to Kenya to deliver a Train the Trainer (T3) course to the Kenyan Defence Force in preparation for their deployment to Somalia in support of AMISOM.

During their placement in Kenya, the IBS Instructors took some time out from their busy schedule to visit a local Kenyan orphanage to donate clothes and gifts.

Tweeting after the training had been completed, the IBS thanked the British Peace Support Team (Africa) for their support.
