3rd (UK) Division Signal Regiment Kiwi Trophies

The Kiwi Trophy is a 14-mile march and shoot competition held annually by 3rd (UK) Division Signal Regiment. It is designed to test soldiers’ physical robustness and marksmanship skills, both of which are vital for operative effectiveness. The competition is named after a large depiction of a Kiwi, carved in the chalk on Beacon Hill in Bulford. It was created in 1919 by soldiers of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force who were awaiting repatriation following the end of the First World War.

The latest event, held on 30 May 2019, was won by 249 Gurkha Signal Squadron.
