Operation Quick Step

Over the weekend of the 23rd of June, sixty cadets from 226 a tactical exercise at Ingleside training area.

Three platoons and one reconnaissance team were deployed to remote locations. The cadets had no indication of the whereabouts or the number of other forces and were tasked with deploying patrols to locate the platoon locations to conduct their own reconnaissance to prepare and plan for future engagements creating a great atmosphere of suspense for the duration of the exercise.

Operation Quick Step was a great success as the cadets were effective in their section and

platoon level radio communications, detainee cadet retrieval, simulated injury treatment, field engineering, camouflage and concealment.

The cadets of 226 are to be commended for their participation in this activity, improvements from individual to platoon level field operation were clear. Thank you to all involved!
