Kate takes part in casualty drill amid snow and freezing temperatures
The Princess of Wales braved freezing temperatures and snow to help administer first aid to a wounded soldier as part of an exercise on Salisbury Plain. In the drill, members of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards were on foot patrol when they came under fire from an enemy. The exercise involved a soldier suffering a gunshot wound to his lower left leg and being evacuated from the scene by his colleagues. Then Kate assisted Lance Corporal Jodie Newell in administering first aid.
