Then followed a period of training, inspections and demonstrations.
The first was a visit by the MGRA
on the 13th March.
He made many complimentary remarks on the appearance of personnel
By this time all officers were wearing coloured FS caps,
CANADA's and NCO's
stripes were whitened, white lanyards worn and vehicles and guns were oiled,
giving the Regiment a very smart appearance.
On the 27th March a Demonstration section was sent to CAMBERLEY to put on a show for the
staff officers and drew many favourable comments.
At this time the powers that be started to worry about the physical condition
of the Division.
The result was 12 mile divisional route marches and PT
from 0615 to 0645 hours despite the difficulty of seeing the instructor
owing to the darkness.
On the 13th April the Regiment went to FARGO Camp, LARKHILL for training in fire and
movement and returned on the 16th April.
The increased confidence with the equipment was here evident and the results
were very pleasing to all.
