The town of Kirkcudbrightshire is located in the west of Scotland and lies at the mouth of the River Dee in Dumfries and Galloway. Kirkcudbright is in close proximity of the sea, the famous tourist attraction of Castle Douglas and the town of Dalbeattie.
Dundrennan Range, a 19 square kilometre training range located south east of the town, is used as a weapons development, testing range and training area. Weapons testing can carry special dangers of its own and staff have to be especially careful working in these environments.
Thankfully, most commonly personal injury claims made by army personnel against their employer involve falls off vehicles, walls or machinery during training, slips, trips or fall on military compounds or road traffic accidents involving army vehicles or accidents caused by faulty weaponry or equipment, in which case the manufacturer is to blame.
