His Highness Brigadier-General Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa the Commander of Bahrain’s Royal Guard received in Manama General Paul Nanson the Commander of British Royal Sandhurst Military Academy.
Welcoming the Commandant, His Highness praised the British Academy’s role in qualification and preparation of officers abreast with latest scientific and military progress, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported.
The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS), commonly known simply as Sandhurst, is the British Army’s initial officer training centre and is located in the town of Camberley, near the village of Sandhurst, Berkshire, 34 miles (55 km) southwest of London.
The Academy’s stated aim is to be “the national centre of excellence for leadership”. All British Army officers, including late-entry officers who were previously Warrant Officers, as well as other men and women from overseas, are trained at The Academy.
Sandhurst is the British Army equivalent of the Britannia Royal Naval College Dartmouth, Royal Air Force College Cranwell, and the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines.
