By BBN Staff: Today, the British High Commission and Ministry of National Security bid farewell to Commander of the British Army Training and Support Unit Belize (BATSUB) Command Lt. Col. Simon Walton.

Walton had served in the post for the past three years.

Chief Executive Officer from the Ministry of National Security, Felix Enriquez, joined in with the British High Commission to the farewell, as well as in welcoming his successor Lt. Col. Simon Nichols.

BATSUB is manned by 12 permanent staff and employs more than 100 local civilians. The Unit carries out up to five dismounted close combat exercises per year, of varying size, as well as hosting the final exercise of the notoriously tough British Army Platoon Commander’s Battle Course, which runs three times a year.
