If your from the Petawawa corps I believe I had one of your cadets in my platoon, he seemed displeased when he was told to remove his mock tower wings, as they are not authorized for wear.

i would not let cadets wear them at my corp, they are not looked highly upon.  wearing moch wings is like me wearing a mock rank. it is not real, it is used for part of the para course, there should not be any given out to cadets.

I have to say that I agree with this one. Could still be a fun corps tradition, though. :)

Thats exacty what we use them for, tradition.  And for some of the cadets in our corps think the wings are the greatest thing,  because it's not easy the first time you jump.) ;D

i have never met some one that ever said "i wish i had moch wings" or someone that is jealous. if other corps really wanted them than i am sure they would go out and get them. it is not very hard.

hey lets jump out of a tower with a bunch of ropes attached to us.   the only point to doing that is for para training. unless all the cadets in your corp go and do para they should not be wearing any wings of any type. period.

and um maroon is the colour of para not "i jumped out of a mock tower" so i wouldn't highlight moch wings in maroon.

if you think that wearing moch wings are right than what would you say to a reg force guy that failed his para but did the moch tower and wore the wings for it. he would get reamed up one side and down the other, and than they would take them off of you.

and the only way they stand out is because they look so ridiculous

but to get back on track......  i have almost finished my Silver D of E. it is by far one of the best things to do as a young Canadian.

Jealous of the wings?  Yeah right, first of all the wings are not authorized for cadets to wear, and secondly having a uniform with wings, medals, or other accoutrements means very little .... as I always base my opinion of someone on their actions and abilities.

Yes, the wings may make your corps stand out, but they also show that your staff advocate something which is unauthorized for cadets to wear.  My corps stands out by our hardworking and dedicated senior NCOs.

Before this thread continues as a battle of insults over mock tower wings, perhaps each of you should review the relevant threads that have discussed this in the past:

http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,25424.0.html

http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,4374.0.html

Whether you agree with the qualification or not really isn't the point. It exists within the cadet program and for some it is an achievement of which they are proud. Belittling them neither proves that mock tower wings have no value, nor does such behaviour speak well of your own maturity.

If you wish to continue a thread on the subject of mock tower wings, stick to arguments with logic and relavance to the role the requisite training has within the context of the Cadet program. Define and establish your arguments based on facts, not personal opinion.

Sir, I am aware that the mock tower wings were once a qualification for cadets to wear, however I have yet to see them in any current regulations .... they are not in the star handbooks, on any badge posters, or in the most current version of the CATOs.  This would lead to the impression that they are no longer authorized for cadets to be wearing (another thing to note is that the cadets on the expedition course have to purchase their mock tower wings if they so choose to).

I am in no way belittling the mock tower, my comments were agaisnt the unauthorized wearing of these wings.  I would do the mock tower for the experiance, should the opporunity arise .... but I would not require unauthorized wings on my uniform to remind me of the experiance.

Are they limited to a region or two? I personally have never seen them.

not limited to any region, im sure your local surplus store would be able to get a hold of some...they just aren't worn, because those people who manage to complete the Para course have their full wings, and those who fail it, are (usually) too ashamed to wear anything

I believe your referring to CWO Sheppard from the Mississauga MPs ..... or so I've been told by one of the "RSMs" that was from my corps, the female MWO.
