Exercise GUMA SUN, conducted from November to December 2016, was a positive experience for the Queen's Royal Dragoon Guards and the Reconnaissance Unit of the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces. The exercise developed further understanding of joint activity and military planning in West Africa and of peace support operations. It also tested the capability of British soldiers to operate in a challenging and unfamiliar environment. Detailed lessons will be captured, analysed and then fed into Army planning and capability development.
