Soldiers in combat uniform showed off equipment, rations, vehicles, and even set-up a “low wire entanglement”. Mine tape replaced the barbed wire and the Commanding Officer (CO), Lieutenant-Colonel John Shone, raced children to see who could crawl the fastest through the simulated obstacle.

Later in the day the CO presented the Mayor with the Regiment’s annual rent payment of a dollar in a short ceremony held before the citizens of Westmount.

Fun times had by all!
