Petawawa, Ontario — The troops of 3rd Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment spent the morning of August 9 throwing hand grenades to complete their individual battle task standards.
The body of the grenade breaks apart into steel fragments with a killing radius of 15 metres, and given its timed fuse of four to five seconds before detonation, safety cannot be emphasized enough.
“It’s going really well, actually,” Lt Caselton said of the preparation for more advanced training later in the year. “We don’t have that many people here today, so for once, we’re actually getting a lot of guys through throwing more than the usual two standard grenades.
“Guys are getting some good training out of it.”
