As May draws to a close the members of enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) Latvia have started to switch gears and look forward to some much needed rest and relaxation, as they start to look forward to redeployment.

April has been a great month for the members of eFP BG LVA. The previous month had been exciting, but with the arrival of COVID-19 personnel got confined to base and the calendar cleared up.

Members of the Enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group had a hell of a third month. As I write this article, history is being made across the globe in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the cold month of February, Task Force WAR PIGS as the Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) Battle Group (BG) capitalizes on each day, forging a multinational war machine.

The early days of February marked the one month anniversary of the Strathcona led eFP Battlegroup(BG) in Latvia.

Strathcona Family, please see a message from the Colonel of the Regiment.

On behalf of all Strathconas it gives me great pleasure to announce that Canadian Pacific Railways has dedicated one of their locomotives to Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians).

On 8 January 2020, the first 150 soldiers from the Enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group (eFP BG) Latvia, departed Edmonton.
