    Hi all,

    I don't suppose anyone knows anything about what went on at this exercise? Is there anywhere I can read more about it? (I think that is somewhat unlikely, still...)

    (Attached - why I'm wondering)

    Hello Chris C,

    A little Googling shows a reference to Ex Horatio on page 151-2 of SJ Moody 2019 'Imagining Nuclear War in the British Army, 1945-1989', which suggests the ex was aimed at exploring the use of nuclear weapons:
