Army medics from Norwich have honed their skills during a military training exercise in Croatia.
Some 110 Army reservists from the 254 Medical Regiment – including the Norwich-based 160 Squadron – spent a fortnight living and working alongside 50 Croatian soldiers in Knin.
The reservists – who are usually based at the Army Reserve Centre on Aylsham Road – refreshed clinical and military skills for the first week, before deploying into the field a four-day exercise to practice their life-saving skills.
They attracted the praise of the country's deputy prime minister and defence minister Damir Krsti?evi? and the UK ambassador to Croatia, Andrew Dalgleish.
Mr Krsti?evi? said: 'The exercise proves the great co-operation between our two countries. It helps develop our capabilities and helps practise team work. And, together with members of the Croatian Armed Forces, you have done an excellent job.'
