RAF Valley MRT (A21) was tasked by the ARCC to assist OVMRO with the search and rescue of two disorientated fell runners on Y’Garn, Snowdonia. A21 deployed from RAF Valley to RV at OVMRO base. Upon arrival, a OVMRO fast party was at the casualties position. It was reported that they were wearing light weight running clothing and were subsequently suffering from hypothermia. OVMRO troops used spare clothing to re-warm the casualties. Once the casualties were able to, they were walked down the NE ridge of Y’Garn. Concurrently, A2l troops prepared for deployment as a stretcher team if the casualties were unable to continue. Once it was confirmed that the casualties would be able to walk without further assistance, A21 stood down and RTB.
