I’ve just returned from French Guyana in South America, where I was taking part in a Jungle Survival Instructors’ workshop. There were reps there from many NATO countries, swapping ideas, examples of survival kit and best practices in Jungle Survival. We were inserted by Helo and exited via “dugout” canoe. A great way to keep on top of perishable skills.

Best practice I saw: the French teams’ electric coffee machine, c’est bon!
