Regimental Association Sitrep 1/21
48th Association logo

As you must have noticed by now, as of January 2021 we have a new Regimental  Association!  About 500 of you have already asked to join through the 48th Highlanders Regimental Association Group page on Facebook. A new interim executive has been appointed and will meet for the first time next week to chart the way forward.  Going forward we will use this Blog to provide sitreps and to direct you to where you can find more information and can connect with other Highlanders.

In September/October 2021 all members will be asked to join the Founding General Meeting of the 48th Highlanders Association.  It is quite likely that meeting and the business you will be asked to conduct will take place virtually in order to allow as many as possible to participate. For that reason it is very important that you complete the two steps to full membership notef below.  

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.  Ask to join and answer the three questions. Once you are into the group you will find the new Interim Constitution listed under “FILES” (October 8 version).

2.  Please register and fill in the information requested at

If you have questions or suggestions for the Executive you can ask them via the 48th Association FB Group or via email to

Unfortunately, the Interim Executive Vice-President Kevin Brogan has had to take a temporary step back due to personal and professional reasons.  The Executive will consider his replacement at their next meeting. And finally… Get the word out to friends and family from your time serving in the Regiment.  Invite them into the FB group and point them to the website. 

Dileas! Your Association Executive

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.
