Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicles (TAPV)
Posted May 28, 2018
The Royal Canadian Dragoons saw an influx of Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicles (TAPV) in 2018. This meant a need for training the entire Regiment in driving and fighting this vehicle. Due to the initiative of many, training began immediately upon arrival of the new vehicle. This resulted in the continuous training of soldiers of The Regiment, and other units within 2 CMBG as well as the Army Reserve (ARes).

Spring/Summer Update from the West Coast Chapter
Posted july 4, 2018
This Spring I was contacted by Mr. Ralph Langdon, the son of Major Howey Langdon [ret’d]. Howey served with the RCD from 1951-1976. Ralph informed me that his father had passed a number of years prior but he had some of his father’s military memorabilia that he thought should be returned to the regiment.
Congratulations to the RCD Slo-pitch team for winning the inter-unit championship game!
