For the third year in a row, the Pakistan Army won an international military exercise competition known as the ‘Pace Sticking Competition’ held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
At least 16 countries competed in the Pace Sticking Competition, which assesses the quality of mixed exercises, with Pakistan finishing second.
“The Pakistan Army holds a unique position in terms of discipline and military drill,” the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst observed.
Notably, for the first time in 2018, the Pakistan Army competed in International Peacekeeping Competitions.
So far, Pakistan Army has won first place in this one-of-a-kind annual competition in 2018, 2019, and 2020, while the Pakistan Army team has finished second in 2022 and 2023.
The competition was terminated in 2021 owing to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Havaldar Nauman of the Pakistan Army was named the best individual drill sergeant this year.
A total of five drill sergeants from Pakistan participated in the closing ceremony.
The British audiences were thoroughly amused by the performance of the famous drill squad.
