Exercise Purple Warrior was a British military exercise conducted in south west Scotland in November, 1987.[1]

This exercise was designed to test lessons learned during the Falklands War.

Most troops involved in this exercise left from Colchester by road to embark onto a small flotilla at Harwich docks and from there to the western coast of Scotland by beached landings. The Port Stanley situation was exercised from RAF West Freugh.
