posted Mar 6, 2017, 8:57 AM by Kathy Carr

SHILO, Man. – Military training will take place in a rural residential area near Camp Hughes tonight and tomorrow (Monday March 6 and Tuesday March 7, 2017). About ten soldiers per patrol from Second Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (2PPCLI) based at CFB Shilo will be conducting reconnaissance (recce) patrolling and evasion skills training during the late night hours in the Antler Hills sub-division area near highway #351.  Weapons, personal equipment and blank ammunition will be carried by the soldiers during the patrols but at no time will weapons be fired. The focus of the training is to conduct night-time close target recce in a semi-urban environment. This training will only take place in areas with land-owners permission but all residents of the area should be aware of the training and should not be alarmed by the movement of soldiers in the vicinity.
