During the period 28 February to 30 April 1944 all personnel fired their principal and secondary arms on the ranges near Tidworth and approximately twenty men from each company were instructed in a special Anti Aircraft firing course on the coast. After many long days of dry running and practice firing in the coldest of weather better than 95% of the entire personnel qualified with their individual arm over a record course. Also during this period various day and night exercises were conducted progressing from platoon to company then Battalion and larger scale problems. Major L, W. Correll assumed Command of Battalion 6 April when Lt. Col T. DeForest Rogers was transferred to 1106th Engineer Group.
