Naval and Aviation Units Form New 8th Battalion

By Commandant’s order, all Naval or Aviation School Units have been realigned from their existing battalions and have been assigned to the newly constituted 8th Battalion comprised of Naval and Aviation Units.

This brings to an end, the mixed Battalion structure, through which these units formed Battalions along with Infantry Units.

In keeping with the order, the Maritime Operations and Training Department (MOTD) has been dissolved, and all of its staff assigned to the 8th Battalion.

The new 8th Battalion spans the twin island nation, as schools both in Trinidad and Tobago have been assigned to it.
