From your Regimental Association Executive
48th Association logo
Our 48th Highlanders Regimental Association Group page on Facebook continues to attract a lot of users.  It is our main branch of the new Association.  Check back frequently… but DONT BE AFRAID TO POST PICTURES AND RECOLLECTIONS THAT RELATE TO YOUR SERVICE!  That is why it is there. If you have friends that served with you, chase them down and get them to sign up.  We are at 500 members and our target for the Fall is 1000.
April is a significant month in the history of our Regiment.  The battles at St Julien and Granventafel Ridge that were part of the 2nd Battle of Ypres are commemorated and remembered as a time when 15th Battalion (48th Highlanders) suffered more casualties in a single day than any other unit of the Canadian Expeditionary Force.  Over the past weeks you have seen the posts that highlight the sacrifices of Highlanders on the page.
If you have not yet done so check out the virtual Regimental Memorial Ceremony video that is now posted there and on the 48th Highlanders You Tube Video channel.

PLEASE!!!!!!!!

If you haven’t already done so there are two things you need to do to become a fully functioning member of our Association:

1.  Please go to the Facebook Group Page that functions as our “Main Branch” and ask to join.  Your interim Exec is looking for opportunities and options for Associations members to gather virtually (or in person should restrictions loosen up).   
Ask to join and answer the three questions.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/843575856446772
and also (and this is very important!)
 
2.  Please register and fill in the information requested at https://www.48thhighlanders.ca/login/

This second item is very important!  It is now fairly clear that the COVID isolation regime is going to be with us for a while longer and it is becoming more and more likely that we will be forced to carry out our founding AGM in September/October will be conducted virtually. That means that the election of members of the new Executive will have to be done using an application that will be based on email voting.  The only way to make sure that as a member of your new Regimental Association your vote gets counted is to make sure you are signed up at www.48thhighlanders.ca

ON EXERCISE URBAN FALCON 2022, Soldiers of the 48th Highlanders, had their urban ops skills put to the test as they practiced fighting through and clearing subway cars through a subway station with simmunition rounds. In their exercise scenario, their mission was to rescue and secure a hi-jacked train from a well trained enemy. They fought against a simulated enemy force of other infantry Master Corporal’s and Sergeants, who set traps and obstacles in their path to test how they would react. Attached to the regiment in this exercise were a small amount of medics and Intelligence personnel from @25fdamb as well as @2intcoy_2cierens, which enabled soldiers to practice intel gathering/handling as well as dealing with casualties in a realistic manner.

Voici ce qui s'est passé lors de l'exercice Urban Falcon 2022. Les soldats des 48th Highlanders ont vu leurs compétences en opérations urbaines mises à l'épreuve alors qu'ils s'entraînaient à combattre et à dégager les voitures de métro à travers une station de métro avec des balles de vaccination, dans un scénario où leur but était de sauver et de sécuriser un train détourné d'un ennemi bien entraîné. Ils se sont battus contre une force d'opposition de caporal-chef et de sergents, qui ont tendu des pièges et des obstacles sur leur passage. Au régiment dans cet exercice se trouvaient un petit nombre d'infirmiers et de personnel du renseignement de @25fdamb ainsi que de @2intcoy_2cierens, ce qui a permis aux soldats de pratiquer le rassemblement/manipulation de renseignements ainsi que de faire face aux victimes de manière réaliste.

On March 5th and 6th, Soldiers of the 48th Highlanders, with members from @2intcoy_2cierens and @25fdamb, who augmented our soldiers as an opportunity to practice their trade skills under the Tactical-Control of an infantry platoon, run through their “prepare for battle” phase during their simulated mission on Exercise Urban Falcon 2022, in which the soldiers were put under the stress of fighting in close quarters, and learning to maneuver and communicate in an entirely new environment.
