World War 2 Remembered - Edmonton Regiment - 1943 Q1

Edmonton Regiment in England

1943 – January to March

Along with the other battalions of the 2nd Canadian Infantry Brigade (the PPCLI and the Seaforths of Canada), the first quarter of 1943 was much the same as the previous two years, another day and another exercise.  The training however had changed focus and now included disembarkation drills, Landing Ship Infantry (L.S. Inf.) drills, assault boat landings and securing a beach-head.  They did not know where they were to be going in the months to come, or when, but it must have been obvious to all that their training was for a specific purpose.  For more on this read the article in our latest newsletter at the link below.
