Fleet Diving Unit (Atlantic) was presented with its first Theatre Honours recently in recognition of the unit’s operations during the Afghanistan conflict. Theatre Honours are a type of Battle Honour, and are awarded to publicly recognize a Canadian Armed Forces unit for successful participation in a theatre of armed conflict. RAdm Craig Baines, Commander MARLANT and JTFA, made the presentation on November 30 during a ceremony attended by current and former unit members, as well as family members of PO2 Craig Blake.
