Observing the Regiment

Torrential rains and howling winds and frigid temperatures did nothing to dampen the spirits and enthusiasm of adventurous Seaforth Highlander Cadets this last weekend (31 Jan – 02 Feb 2020) as they joined their affiliated Primary Reserve Unit, the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada on their weekend training at Rocky Point, Vancouver Island. In keeping with…

Snowy Stag II

Last year’s “Exercise Snowy Stag” was so much fun we decided to do it again! The winter exercise is a one-day field trip to Mount Seymour where participating cadets are equipped with snowshoes and venture out to explore the over 10kms of trails maintained by the team at Mount Seymour Resort. Ten cadets took part…

Ortona Remembered

This week, rather than attend to their usual Tuesday night training activities, cadets of 72nd Seaforth Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps commemorated the Christmas Dinner served to members of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada during the historic Battle of Ortona. The background story goes like this: December 25, 1943 was Christmas in Ortona, Italy and…

Exercise Pioneer Crossing

We promised outdoor adventure and – with the help of our sponsoring Regiment – we delivered in spades (and axes) last weekend! In “Exercise Pioneer Crossing” 72nd RCACC Capt. Leong and cadet Sgt. Ching joined members of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada at one of their field exercises in Chilliwack and enjoyed an up-close and…

We Remember

In our…

Ceremonial Review concludes the year

Just as the school year comes to an end, so too does the cadet year. There is no final exam, but there is a final parade – the Annual Ceremonial Review (ACR). The 72nd’s review was held Saturday June 8 at the historic Seaforth Armoury. Over sixty guests attended the afternoon event which featured HCol…

Highland Paddlers

The weather for the weekend of May 11-12 was full of sunshine … very appropriate since our “Highland Paddler” field training exercise (FTX) was held on British Columbia’s famous Sunshine Coast region! The exercise began on Friday night, not with the usual bus ride to camp, but with a scenic ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay…

Cadets Find Adventure at FTX Lost Stag

No cadets were lost on FTX (Field Training Exercise) Lost Stag … but that should be no surprise because they had all practised using maps and compasses before last weekend’s adventure began! Held among the 260 hectares of Tynehead Regional Park in Surrey, twenty cadets participated in a range of outdoor activities which included navigational…
