      Grant,
      Yes, I've heard about (BATUS) British Army Training Unit Suffield, ohh for quite some time now! I also remember reading about in British Soldier Magazine about the taticals they operated there. I also read that they used the Chieftain tank as well, that is why I asked you about the tanks used etc,. I think the articles were in around 1980's I vaguely remember reading,...'


      Also, the Royal Air force operated out of CFB Goose Bay till the 1990's. I think they still do training out there in the east coast albeit temporarily?

      The Royal Navy had previously been based in Halifax,Nova Scotia in Cold War years from 1955 till around 1966. The Sixth(R.N.) Submarine Squadron, operated/trained there etc,. And attached were naval rating of the Royal Canadian Navy.
