    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    I was in 30th Field under LCol Marmo, probably the funest time I had in the Army. When I went to E Bty Para I got to play with the L5s and did the last Ex with them before the Bty changed to M109. At the time Maj Cotten was boss of D Bty and he had been an LT in 30th Field.

    'It's not what it looks like' — Ottawa man caught with pants down in pony stall

    Maybe someone told him " go f**k your cap badge" and this was the closest thing?

    Mess dues

    So I am being told that Mess dues are due. The Mess is closed and wont be open for a long time. No one is working in the Mess. There is nothing being bought or used in the Mess. Is it right and can they ask for Mess dues?

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Thats what I was thinking, especially as my co-worker will be going back at the same time and we are both in a 20 by 20 room.

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Are there any SOPs I should be looking for when it comes to being sent back to work? I have been ordered back to work on Wednesday and just want to know what I should look out for.

    Army Reserve Restructuring

    Disciplinary? Where I work, the CICs dont give a damn about TI cards or even following the rules and nothing ever happens about it. Even leaving rifles, bolts and ammo in a cube van over night with no one around. It makes me sick. If things like that happend in the Reserves there would be...

    Army Reserve Restructuring

    Why not look at something like the British London Regt? It has had 4 or 5 Companies in its recent existence from the 90s and before that it was huge. They all have different cap badges but I am assuming one CO? Im pretty sure most reserve units could be run by a Captain given the numbers.

    Army Reserve Restructuring

    Until the Reserve system is "fixed" its really not worth embedding RCEME guys at a unit, there just isnt enough work. I am a Weapons Tech in a Reserve infantry unit, only because I have been there so long that they had positions when I got out of the Regs and went reserve. I work as a CQMS and...

    Active Shooter In NS. April 19 2020

    I did a quick search and it seems there was an auction in the area a couple of weeks ago and there were surplus police car lights. Why, why would these be sold? They should just destroy them.

    Sleeves up in Cadpat

    I have been a Wpns tech in the Army for 36 years in places like Germany and the Airborne in Petawawa. I am aware of what its like to follow orders but I was never taught to do it blindly. For some a**hat to arbitrarily say that sleeves need to be down, I would really like an explanation why. I...

    Sleeves up in Cadpat

    Does anyone have an official document of where it says that sleeves can not be worn up? I assumed that on the new type it just wasnt possible but I still have some of the old ones and like them in the summer as I can roll up the sleeves. Now I am being told that I cant but no one has any proof...

    Dress and Deportment

    "I interpret that part of the regulation to be "neatly trimmed, and shorter than the rest of the beard". Anything anyone does to go above and beyond that, such as actually shaving it three times a week is all well and good, but under no reasonable interpretation of what the regulation actually...
