Which only goes to show that even the CDS is confused by some CAF notions: The RCN, CA and RCAF are NOT environments - they are CAF Commands. The environments are Sea, Land and Air. The tags inside my DEU says DEU Sea, not DEU Navy. Probably rare, but you could conceivably have a Log officer wearing (being assigned) an Air DEU and spend her whole career working in and at bases under the CA or RCN control, for instance.

And, BTW, once you decide that the environments are sea, land and air, that doesn't leave much room for another one on planet earth.  ;D

Cyber environment  ;D

Does the red fedora denote that the cyber operator is also Cyber SAR qualified ???

Yes!  And the wrist guards are a great example of the CAF taking the initiative and dealing with the injuries their Cyber Warriors will most definitely incur in the service of her Majesty!

An interesting choice in uniform colour and style. Not a bad idea at first but as the US Army is now returning to pinks and greens our special forces now are dressed like Americans. Guess we jumped the gun on this one.

So, the US is following our lead?

At least the USMC credits us with helping develop MARPAT.

Is that really how the Comd SM beard grew in?  Or he's wearing a goatee?  Either way that beard in no way meets the standard IMHO, the CA SM just sent out an email threatening to rescind beards in the CA if we didn't start enforcing standards better.

There’s a lot of grey in his beard. That’s precisely the reason I won’t grow one. Plus I’m a bit of contrary type. 😈

I guess they decided to save costs and copy the Aussie Army short sleeve uniform.

I don't care who we copied it from, SOF has the bessed dress uniform in the CAF, and this coming from a guy who spent the last 13 years bragging about how much better RCN dress uniforms are than anyone else's (until now).

Carrying that sword everywhere must be a real 'drag' though :)

Mustache and beard is the recommended application area, think outside the box! You might need a bigger application brush though...  ;D

That's good leadership right there. Other NCOs can't enforce dress standards so me and everyone else who does follow the rules and enforce them suffer.

I don't understand the issue with beards?  I've had one on and off since I switched to the RCN.  I grow it out when I'm not sailing and when I'm sailing or have to wear firefighting gear, I shave it off. 

Some beards I've seen are pretty bad but it's more so the fact that some individuals aren't blessed with a full face of hair.  That doesn't mean they have any less of a right to grow one than I do.
