Ex El Maadi 2010
Three Auckland North Battalion was the host unit for the 2010 Annual Field Exercise Exercise El Maadi which was based in Helwan Camp, Waiouru.
This is how we are going to do it, Ex El Maadi, March 2010 (WN-09-0001-032).
Twenty four officers and 206 soldiers took part in the exercise, with reservists from 5 Wellington West Coast Taranaki, 6 Hauraki Battalion and 7 Wellington Hawkes Bay Battalion supported by an enemy party from 1 RNZIR plus cooks, mechanics, signallers and supply staff.
The reservists first revised basic peace-keeping skills including urban patrols, security, use of interpreters, room entry, reaction to contact, VCPs, first aid, key point protection and reaction firing.
The exercise concluded with a four-day scenario based on recent reservist peacekeeping experience in Timor Leste and Solomon Islands.
