UAE Sandhurst Association launched

posted on 14/05/2009: 2082 views





The UAE Sandhurst Association was launched at the British Embassy in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday at a reception hosted by the British Ambassador, Edward Oakden.

The launch of the new association for UAE Sandhurst Alumni was made by Commandment of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) Major General D.J. Rutherford-Jones.

Present at the ceremony was Deputy Chief of Staff of the UAE Armed Forces Major General Saeed Mohammed al-Rumaithi. 198 Emiratis have graduated from RMAS from 1974 to today- more Emiratis have graduated from RMAS than from any other country save the UK.

During the reception, a hall at RMAS was named after the late UAE founding father Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan al-Nahyan. The "Sheikh Zayed Hall" is in memory namesake as well as in appreciation of the UAE-UK historical relations.

At the reception, Al-Rumaithi stressed that UAE nationals have always proved efficiency and ability to shoulder responsibilities. He further expressed pride in UAE nationals' ambitions and interest in attainment of education and knowledge in both military and civilian fields.

The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS), commonly known simply as Sandhurst, is the British Army officer initial training centre. All British Army officers, including late entry officers who were previously Warrant Officers, as well as many members of royal families from elsewhere in the world, are trained at Sandhurst. Nearly 10 percent of British cadets are female and nearly 10 percent of all cadets come from overseas.

The RMAS Sandhurst was formed in 1947 from a merger of the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich (which trained officers for the Royal Artillery and Royal Engineers from 1741 to 1939) and the Royal Military College (1801-1939) at Sandhurst.

In April this year, Sheikh Zayed Bin Hamdan Bin Zayed al-Nahyan completed training at the prestigious academy to become the most recent member of the UAE Sandhurst Alumni. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
