Posts Tagged ‘Meaford Tank Range’
Our thoughts are never very far when it comes to thinking about our Canadian Troups. Today my husband and I drove passed a truck (tank) with some young chaps dressed in fatique. They were leaving the Land Force Central Training Centre formally known as the Meaford Tank Range located in Meaford Ontario. This place trains soldiers in tank warfare and artillery gunnery. The grounds are approx. 17,500 acres of cliffs, dense bush, swamps, a lake and the Georgian Bay shoreline. It is state of the art, both with its facility and training. One of Cananda’s largest military training centres. Grey Roots Museum and Archives in Owen Sound have an exibit called Home On The Range, The Meaford Tank Story until May 10/09. Anyone wishing to see this display should take an afternoon out with a friend or family member and spend sometime seeing what has been and what is involved with being apart of this journey. Please Bless are Canadian Troups over seas.
