From 8-10 February 2013, Alpha Company of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada conducted a live fire exercise for 50 of its soldiers at Volkes Range and the Slesse Creek Demolition Range near Chilliwack, BC. The objective of the exercise was for every soldier to reach a level of proficiency with his/her personal weapon on the conventional 600 meter Volkes range prior to moving to the Slesse Creek Demolition Range to practice Fire Team maneuver techniques utilizing both blank and live ammunition as gateway training for an upcoming live fire patrolling exercise to be conducted in the United States in March 2013. Despite the cold, all soldiers qualified on their individual weapons and met all standards in anticipation of the upcoming training exercise at Fort Lewis which will be conducted with other infantry soldiers of the Royal Westminster Regiment of New Westminster.
