2018 Winter Exercise "Riley Whiteout"
The Canadian Armed Forces are among the top five most highly-trained militaries in the world, and The Royal Hamilton Light Infantry (RHLI, or “Rileys”) certainly shares that reputation! Part of their amazing skill set is the ability to not only survive in the field in the winter, but be able to operate effectively and decisively under winter conditions, any where in the world.
Keeping cold-weather operational skills in top form requires being out in the snow, which is what the RHLI, or Rileys, did this past January 19-21, at Canadian Forces Base Borden, near Barrie, Ontario. Exercise “Riley Whiteout” saw “B” Company in action, supported by a psychological operations team from the Riley’s “C” company, based in Burlington. View the full story and further images .
