Hey guys,
I caught something on AM radio phone lines
A woman called, and affirmed that 6 cadets were killed by grenade at Valcartier in 1974?
Anyone ever heard of that?
Cheers

Yes, and if you can trace a Major Glendenning, he was in the room just after
the incident. He has the full story.

Wasn‘t this the incident that the cadets were suppose to be using "dummy
grenades" and the instructor didn‘t check and confirm all the grenades
as dummy prior to the class? It turned out that a real grenade was
mixed in with the dummy ones with tragic consequences. I remember
hearing about it on basic training in the early 80s, but, part of me
simply thought it was a military myth.

Yes. But that was then 1974 and this is now. IIRC it was during a
familiarization class being conducted by a member of the PRes or Reg
Force and in a classroom setting nowhere near a grenade range. The
cadets were not being taught how to prime or throw grenades. The
incident was by no means hushed up - it was all over the press for
weeks.
