  • Description

    King Hussein spent last Thursday (7th May) making a special tour of the Jordanian military establishment at Zerka, a Royal Engineering Corps base and college, where a community training centre for young cubs and students has been established.

    At Zerka young boys are trained in the use of light weapons, and prepared for combat conditions when a little older.

    Manoeuvres, obstacle courses and simulated battle conditions are all part of the cubs' training programme.

    While at the Centre, King Hussein watched Jordan's future generation of soldiers tackle many man-sized situations in special displays of their skills.

    Before leaving Zerka King Hussein told trainees he was proud of all young men who join training camps, as they were the great hope for all Arabs and source of pride to them. He hoped they would be as proud to wear their uniforms, as he as he was to wear his, and reassured them that his faith in eventual victory had no limits.
