From drills to drums - experience what a soldier's life was like at the Halifax Citadel this summer!

First, sign your enlistment papers in the historic orderly room and get fitted for your uniform in the tailor room. Once you're properly turned out, you're ready to report for duty! Atten-SHUN! Your drill sergeant will show you some pretty neat foot drills. Now that you can march like a soldier, time to see if you can drum like one! After learning a marching beat or two, it's off to the signal post to send a coded message. See if you can raise your flag all the way to the top of the post! It's hard work being a soldier in a historic British fort, but a lot of fun too. Now that you've completed your training, it's time to rest - at ease, soldier!
