Roughly 1,500 British and 250 Albanian troops took part in Exercise Albanian Lion 2016. As part of the exercise, Royal Marines joined up with Albanian forces to practice their core amphibious fighting skills, with the objective to recapture the base from opposing forces.
Albanian Commandos joined the Royal Marines for the final part of the exercise – fighting their way through a network of trench systems that gave their colleagues, acting as the enemy, plenty of opportunity to hide.
As part of NATO, British troops constantly train other countries whose military may not be at the same experience level as the seasoned Brits. As far as having a mentor goes, after the Americans, British troops are as good as they come.
