C Squadron - CBRN Training Day
Posted on November 23, 2014

As combat arms soldiers, our job is to perform our duty without hesitation or fault. In order to do this, we focus on training in our particular trade each and every day. However, one skill set that is vital in modern warfare is being able to operate in a CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiation, Nuclear) environment.

114th Leliefontein Celebrations
Posted on November 18, 2014


During the week of 3-8 November 2014, The Royal Canadian Dragoons celebrated the 114th anniversary of the Battle of Leliefontein.  On 7 November 1900, during the Boer War, Sgt Holland, Lts Turner and Cockburn acted valiantly and courageously in preventing the capture of the canons from the Boers.  They were each awarded the Victoria Cross for their actions, and 114 years later we still remember the grit and fortitude displayed that day.

The Royal Canadian Dragoons’ (RCD) second annual Cavalry Cup (Cav Cup) Competition was held the week of 14-19 August 2014 in Garrison Petawawa. The Regiment conducted a dismounted Troop level competition to confirm the soldiering and tactical skills of its fighting troops; during the week, each Squadron (Sqn) rotated through the 48-hour competition that was designed to push Dragoons to their mental and physical limits while fostering esprit-de-corps.
