Unit History: Junior Infantry Battalion

Junior Infantry Battalion
The Battalion was organised like a normal military unit
with special attention being given to educational instruction
and the encouragement of sport ,hobbies and other outdoor pursuits
to promote a healthy body and mind. They would hopefully go on to become
the future  Warrant Officers and Senior NCO’S of the British Army.
Their daily routine was morning parade with either weapon training,
PT or Drill, followed by half a days educational instruction.
The remainder of their time was devoted to other activities while
each evening was set aside for hobbies and other recreational pursuits
