Laws of the Jungle: The Battle for Belize - 05/14/15 11:23 AM

The British Army Training Support Unit Belize (BATSUB) has been a hub for jungle warfare training for decades, but in 2011 it was scaled right down.

Just six personnel are based in the country now, but demand for training has recently started to increase, with members of 2nd Battalion, the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment one of the most recent units to go there on exercise.

It's seen as one of the toughest places in which to train, and soldiers from the regiment have been spending a month living under the canopy adapting their tactics, live firing and learning survival skills.

Forces TV has been given exclusive access to a soldier's life in the Belizian jungle.

Members of the 2nd Battalion, The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment have been learning how to fight and survive in one of the world's toughest environments - the jungle.

Forces TV's Carla Prater followed the battalion on exercise to see the training opportunities on offer.
