    Live Cannonball from the Plains of Abraham found in Quebec City

    The fall of shot is right for Montgomery's mortar battery which was 700 yards from the fortress walls.  These mortars were British captured from British forts.  "On December 1, Montgomery arrived at Pointe-aux-Trembles. His force consisted of 300 men from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd New York...

    The Khadr Thread

    Except there are members of the governing party that seem to be willingly assisting in making sure that money is never available to a Canadian court.  In this case, these folks may have to use the process to ensure that he never enjoys the money and contributes heartily to his lawyers retirement...

    The Khadr Thread

    So in the end it all comes back to what the Liberal govt of 2003 should have done but chose not to - charge Khadr.  As a nation state, we have a duty to ensure that the world does not suffer for our bad apples and when it does we clean up the mess with our justice system.  The settlement still...

    Ammunition bunkers at Churchill?

    Ack, I concur.  I also see in another picture the M1941 Mountain ruck that we issued post war. They are great pics, so much of how we did things at the beginning of the 80s when I joined.  Do they still made billy tins for winter tent groups before Xmas leave now?  It is interesting to see some...

    Ammunition bunkers at Churchill?

    I would say that those photos are closer to 46 than 66.  Stens, Lee Enfields; 37 Pattern sling, flare gun holster, and that's a 37 Pattern large pack under the camo cover judging by the shoulder straps.  Mids 50s all that webbing was green and 51 Pattern.  Mid 60s would see C1 rucksacks in use...

    "Canadian Forces warns members affiliated with radical groups"

    Really!  May I ask how two First Nations men can be "tone deaf" to their own racial issues?  I am half breed, never lived on reserve and am by no means tone deaf.  It is hard to live in the brown skin suit everyday and be tone deaf in Canada.  I think this protest was silly and not deserving...
