Abstract
The energy expenditure of infantry troops participating in winter training exercises at Churchill and Frobisher Bay was monitored. Twenty-seven personnel comprising three tent groups were studied as they carried out the normal tasks of living in tents and moving on foot. At Churchill, where mechanical transport and laboratory facilities were available, direct measurements with the Kofranyi-Michaelis respirometer were obtained as the personnel carried out their training assignments including cross country patrols up to 6000 metres a day. - Truncated
