101 MWD Sqn supporting Trojan Sqn, DTUS in Slovenia

This summer the Trojan Squadron, DTUS, embarked on an Adventurous Training Exercise in the Julian Alps, supported by 101 Military Working Dog Squadron, 1 MWDR and the Royal Signals. The Julian Alps are a mountain range of the Southern Limestone Alps that stretch from northeastern Italy to Slovenia, where they rise to 2,864 m at Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia and of the former Yugoslavia. They are named after Julius Caesar, who founded the municipium of Cividale del Friuli at the foot of the mountains. A large part of the Julian Alps is included in Triglav National Park. The Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS) is a bursary scheme run by the Defence Academy to provide engineering and technical graduates to the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and the MOD Civil Service via the Defence Engineering and Science Group (DESG) and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL). The scheme provides academic and financial support to students alongside adventurous training and sporting opportunities with the aim of promoting personal and professional development.  Students on the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS) must attend an approved partner university and will be affiliated to 1 of 4 squadrons: Taurus in Birmingham, Typhoon in Loughborough, Trojan in Newcastle and Thunderer in Southampton. As well as personnel from 101 Military Working Dog Squadron leading and giving technical advice, there was also the award of Summer Mountain Foundation course for the participants to take back with them.
