Students given a taste of Army life.

Students from St David's College, Cardiff, were among more than 100 teenagers put through their paces by soldiers. The Royal Engineers and the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) challenged the students to a series of situations faced by the military, testing their teamwork.

Nine challenges faced the participating students at the annual Engineering Challenge at Cwrt Y Gollen near Crickhowell. They included changing parts on military and civilian vehicles, stripping and assembling weapons and completing initiative tests. Major Dave Green, REME senior engineering officer, said: 'The event enabled young people to gain a first-hand experience of what life in the Army is like.' For more information on Army careers, go to
