ROSE BARRACKS, Germany – Leaders of the 1st Armoured Infantry Brigade of the British Army visited the 2nd Cavalry Regiment to discuss capabilities and future training opportunities between the two NATO countries Oct. 5.

Brigadier Sam Humphris, commander of 1AI, and other leaders, toured the Regiment Headquarters and a motor pool on U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria, gaining an understanding of the Regiment’s combat platforms and integrated tactical network capabilities.

“The quality of the Soldiers I met today, I’ve been deeply impressed by,” said Humphris after viewing the communication systems and Strykers of 3rd Squadron, 2d Cavalry Regiment.

The two units have a Memorandum of Partnership signed by U.S. Army Europe and Africa and the British Field Army with the goal of achieving operational and tactical interoperability.

2CR recently participated in Saber Junction 21 at the Joint Multinational Readiness Center in Hohenfels, Germany, where it served as a subordinate unit to the 1AI headquarters, the 3rd (United Kingdom) Division. 1AI also provided a platoon of dismounted infantry to serve with 2CR during Saber Junction.

Next month, 1AIB expects to send five soldiers to the Regiment’s Expert Infantry Badge and Expert Soldier Badge training and testing.

“It’s fantastic to learn the really exciting things the Regiment has in store for us and how we can hopefully connect better,” Humphris continued.

The 1st Armoured Infantry Brigade is headquartered in Tidworth, England, approximately 75 miles west of London.
