Earlier this month, Royal Bahamas Defence Force Rangers in New Providence had put on a stellar display and performance for His Royal Highness Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.

However, while those Defence Force Rangers were in the company of royalty, 74 others (67 Ranger Recruits and 7 Rangers) gave up the luxuries of life and took to the fields of Grand Bahama for their 7th Annual RBDF Rangers Overnight Hikeduring March 5 and 6th, 2016.

During the experience, the young participants were evaluated on their ability to tie knots, bends and hitches and their knowledge of the Defence Force Rangers core values. The hike also offered them an experience to live in less than amenable conditions whilst practicing the art of survival, leadership, character development and teamwork.  Defence Force Marines assigned to the Ranger Program made proactive use of this time also weaving in invaluable moments to counsel and mentor the young men and women of the Programme, imparting sound advice on how to become productive Bahamian citizens.

The Overnight Hike culminated in a six-mile expedition, which was impressively completed by all who participated.
