The reality of operations in Iraq is that they are, by their very nature, multinational. Each base is composed of small contingents from the nations of the coalition, each dependant on the others for success.
LdSH(RC) is the lead mounting unit for Rotation seven, Operation Impact in the Middle East. Soldiers throughout the Joint Operations Area (JOA) have been helping foster regional stability by building positive rapport with allied coalitions.
Greetings from sunny Ali Al Salem Air Base!
As 1 CMBG once again takes on the task of filling out the Enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Latvia (eFP BG), Strathcona's are of course tasked with manning the eFP BGs Armoured Reconnaissance Troop.
Members of the Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) made their way to various locations in the Middle East over the months of April and May, some more fortunate than others landing in the warm summer nights of Amman, Jordan.
Operation IMPACT's Canadian Training Assistance Team in Jordan (CTAT-J) has been lucky enough to be staffed with a significant number of soldiers from Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians).
Soldiers of D and HQ Squadrons conducted work up training in preparation for their take over the staffing of the 3 CDSB Base Auxiliary Security Force (BASF).
It has been 104 years since C squadron's charge at Moreuil Wood, and this year the Regiment was once again allowed to stand proudly on the parade square to remember this moment in history.
