Military to conduct training between Stratford and London

By StratfordToday Staff

Canadian Army Reserve personnel from 31 Service Battalion, London Support Company will conduct driver and convoy operations training between London and Stratford on Wednesday Dec. 7, according to a news release.

Activities will include administrative convoy training on a planned, return highway route transiting London, Ballymote, Bryanston, Prospect Hill, Conroy, Stratford, Fairview, Brooksdale, Youngsville, Kintore, and Thorndale.

This is regular, scheduled training that keeps combat service support personnel and units ready to respond to missions in Canada — like floods and wildfires — and support of international stability operations with partners and allies.

Participating personnel will remain within their vehicles for the road move as dismounted drills are not planned, except for maintenance purposes. Members of the public may see military vehicles on the following major roads and highways: Oxford Street, Highbury Avenue, County Road 23, Highway 7, County Road 113, County Road 6, County Road 16, County Road 27, Huron Street.

This training is being conducted in order to keep local Canadian Army Reserve members’ skills current on convoy drills, unit discipline and on the safe and effective operation of specific vehicle platforms.

All of the soldiers participating will be practicing enhanced Force Health Protection Measures based on, and in addition to Public Health guidelines. All measures are being taken to ensure minimum inconvenience in these areas during the exercise dates. Members of the public are asked to take extra caution when approaching military vehicles, and are thanked in advance for their understanding and co-operation.
