A JNCO’s Perspective of Ex Wessex Warrior by LCpl Mason, 2ic 2 Section 5 Pl B Coy


Ex Wessex Warrior is a force on force exercise where we play enemy for other units deploying on exercise but it also provides the opportunity for valuable training for our battalion. The training scope offers a very wide range of opportunities providing section 2ics the chance to step up and command a Section: this is what I have been doing for the past year. Because of this, I feel that I have learnt a lot in taking part in Ex Wessex Warrior as it has greatly developed my own personal skills.


I also think it is good training to see the situation from the enemy’s point of view, seeing what points we can improve on and, hopefully, help other regiments out by briefing them on what we thought of their performance and where we think they can improve. I think that Wessex Warrior is a valuable training aide for not only the exercising troops but also for those who are playing enemy in 3 MERCIAN.


As part of the Orbat for Ex Wessex Warrior, we also play the rôle of CIVPOP and militia and get to see the battle from the enemy point of view which, again, is a very good training aid for us. Rôle playing these parts is another opportunity for young


commanders to show their command ability as serials usually focus on small teams of fire team or, at the most, Section level. Playing CIVPOP is quite enjoyable and fairly easy going by comparison to our Infantry rôle and there is normally a lot more time to administer ourselves and get some rest which is good. The CQMS providing supplies such as warm scoff, cans of pop etc, all things that keep the morale up of the troops and make the exercise that much easier. The downside of playing CIVPOP is when there are serials going on you may only get used once or twice a week. This can sometimes detract from the exercise and can occasionally become a little boring so we appreciate alternating the Coys between each Ex Wessex Warrior. Playing CIVPOP does, however, also provide an opportunity for young commanders like myself to practise our delivery of lessons in the field, between the serials.


Overall, my experience of Wessex Warrior and playing CIVPOP has been enjoyable. Further to this, I don’t think that I would have developed my own personal skills as quickly had I not been given the opportunity to take part in exercise of this nature.
