One Response to Exercise “Rovergang” – adventure training for young officers

  1. James P Moore Lt Col (retd) REME says:

    Exercise Rover Gang was a competition between several groups of young officers from Malaya, Hong Kong and Singapore. Each team had a Landrover and were given various tasks taking them the length of Malaya, including stripping the Rover to fit in an aircraft, river crossing, map reading and general physical and team ability. The illustrated winning team were –
    John Lamb Martin Ough-dealy Roy Davies
    Jim Moore Mike Day Ian Stark
    The photo was taken at 221 BVD in South Johore If required I have several other photos of activities and one of the DS controlling the exercise.
