Ex STEELE BEASTS 19 kicked off with a lovely meeting time of 0240 hrs in the B Squadron hangar on 9 February, much to everyone’s delight. Passports were handed out as the troops arrived, and everyone loaded onto the busses for the drive to the airport.
Earlier this month, Ronan’s family reached out to the Regiment to help fulfill one of his last requests: Ronan would like to ride in a tank. On the 1st of November 2018, members of B Squadron had the honour and privilege to help Ronan with that request.
On 26 August 2018, the LdSH(RC) Immediate Response Unit (IRU)Vanguard Company (Coy) along with supporting HQ elements departed for Vernon to engage a familiar enemy, the wildfires raging across British Columbia.
This year’s Exercise STEELE SABRE saw a well-honed B Squadron conduct a lot of meaningful training in a very short amount of time. You see dear reader; this exercise was also my first time back on the tanks in about 4 years!
As members of B Squadron woke up bright and early on the weekend of 20 February 2016, they awoke ready for two weeks of thrilling training in Fort Hood, Texas.
