British Army Training and Liaison Staff Kenya
British Army Training and Liaison Staff Kenya (BATLSK) is responsible for supporting Infantry battalion group exercises and approximately 3,000 British troops train in Kenya each year in a harsh unforgiving terrain ranging in altitude from 8,000 feet down to 2,300 feet. BATLSK has been based at its present site in Kahawa Barracks.It is located 30 Miles North of Nairobi in what is Now Kahawa Garrison in what used to be the Dry Ration store for the entire British Garrison which used to come under the command of 24 Infantry Brigade in the 1960s and whose garrison complex used to stretch into what is Now Nairobi University.BATLSK was set up when the British Army left Kenya on independence in 1964. That part which now comprises Kahawa Garrison used to accommodate the former King’s African Rifles, and now the Kenyan Army and encroaches into what used to belong to the British Army, including the former Married Quarter complex of the old British Garrison.The main purpose of BATLSK is to provide for the administration of Ex GRAND PRIX which visits Kenya on FTX several times per year on Kenya’s excellent training areas.
