On the weekend of 9/10 April members of the 7/60th attended the Crown Forces Officer / NCO School at Fort George National Historic Site of Canada in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.  This annual event allows unit commanders to gather, discuss and learn standardised drill for the upcoming season, and later return to their units to teach the new material.  While two of the 7/60th’s command staff attended the training school, other members took part in refreshing their drill elsewhere on site.  After spending the night in the barracks at Fort George, the entire contingent participated in the ‘All Ranks’ drill day, further honing their drill despite somewhat unpredictable weather.  This practice will hold the unit in good stead for our first event of the season at the Siege of Fort Meigs in Perrysburg, Ohio on 28 /29 May.  Photos of the drill weekend to follow!
