A SOLDIER from Atwell helped his section claim victory during a military skills competition last month.

Trooper Nam Chua was one of 120 soldiers from 13th Brigade to compete in Exercise Retimo.

The annual competition, held at the Bindoon Military Training Area and Irwin Barracks, is used to decide the Army Reserve’s best section in WA.

Trooper Chua, 29, was thrilled with the win after also winning last year’s Exercise Retimo.

“We all worked well together during the competition,” he said. “There was a lot of teamwork because we know each other well and we all know our roles in the section.”
