|March||Despite adverse weather conditions, the Battalion carried out a vigourous training programme. Specialists Platoons, M.M.G., Mortar, and P.I.A.T. were able to practice on the ranges while the Rifle Companies were given ample opportunity of firing on the local ranges.|
Company and Battalion Schemes were laid on culminating in a Brigade scheme on March 24, 1944, which was called BIZZ II. All schemes proved of great value to the Battalion as mistakes were made and rectified enabling All Ranks to improve their Standard of Training.
Physical Training was also carried out. This included cross country runs and forced marches.
The majority of the Battalion made two Parachute Jumps during the month. One jump was made from a balloon and the other from a C-47 Aircraft on Exercise BIZZ II.
No Reinforcements were received from Canada this month although there were a few Officers and Other Ranks who transferred to the Battalion from other Canadian Units.
C-in-C 21st Army Group inspected this Unit on 8th March ,1944.
