Calgary’s Mewata Drill Hall, or Armoury, is home to several units, including the Calgary Highlanders and the King’s Own Calgary Regiment.
It was good to meet some of the team and I imagined the soldiers that had passed through Mewata over the course of the last century. A sobering thought.
Constructed during WWI, the Armoury at one time featured an underground 30 meter range and a bowling alley. I was told these were off limits due to structural damage; too bad, it would’ve been fun to blast away.
There’s a Sherman tank outside the Armoury, standing there, resolute, against the enemy. These days, that would be the Weather. Go on, tank, shoot the snow!
Train hard, think positive, fight easy.
