Whilst the Leeming troops were up on Arran last weekend, the RAF Valley MRT troops travelled south down the A487 to Pembrokeshire. Blessed with great weather, they took full advantage of the quality climbing that the area has to offer. 
For the old troops out there, do you have a favourite grant period that’s stuck in your mind over the years? #noordinaryjob #royalairforce #pembrokeshire#wales #cymru #sirbenfro #climbing #instadaily #rafvalley #mudandroutes

How about a drive down memory lane for #throwbackthursday? Over 76 years of service has seen MR wagons come and go across the teams of the Mountain Rescue Service, accumulating thousands upon thousands of miles on the roads of the UK and beyond! Any troops have a vehicle specific tale to tell?

It was ‘right place right time’ for one of the RAF Valley MRT hill parties on Saturday, as they were on hand to assist Llanberis MRT with a callout on Yr Wyddfa. With reports of an injured walker on the Llanberis Path, the troops were fortunately right on scene and were able to assist the walker before placing him on board the train to be taken down to Llanberis.
