Following the meeting of the Minister of National Defence with the Conference of Defence Associations, the Chief of the General Staff advised the several General Officers Commanding on 29 January 1959 that the training of the Militia would be designed to make it effective in Survival Operations rather than in field operations. Detailed instructions would be issued later.

It was classified Top Secret and declassified in 1986. In addition there are some photos from a survival summer camp in Albert Head.
