    How are civilians legally requried to address members of the CF

    Interesting. Context is everything. When I'm working on base (I'm a civilian) I address CF members by rank (Private, Captain, Colonel, etc). They, in turn, address me by my position (Padre). The members I know more personally I call by first name and they, mine. If it is a private (I meet a lot...

    It's obviously a Toyota.  ;) . It's from the "Toyota War" between Libya and Chad in 1987. Original (and larger) photo here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Chadian_soldiers_in_Toyota_pickup_truck.jpg My guess is a Toyota HiLux of early 80's vintage.

    Decoding the Black Patches

    Came across this article in the New York Times this morning which attempts to decode the unit, mission and launch patches of what are believed to be some of the "Black" (i.e. classified) US military programs. Curiously, the US military and security apparatus has made little comment on this...

    APRIL FOOLS 2008: Notice: Database problems

    I have done a healing on a photocopier by the laying on of hands. Perhaps if an exorcism is required, a call to the ChapGen would be in order?

    Winter paint question

    There are two pictures in "The Leopard In Canadian Service" (McNorgan, Bruce. Ottawa. Service Publications. 2005) of a Leopard C1 in winter white camo in Germany  (p.6) with big "68" roundels on the turret and on the front fender (bridging numbers? looks like a perfect bulls eye!) and a Leopard...

    World Religions: Statistics, Respect and Selecting a Faith

    No, that is not how the Roman Catholic Church sees itself. It sees itself as the "one true church". But as part of an independent classification, self-definition is irrelevant.

    World Religions: Statistics, Respect and Selecting a Faith

    Roman Catholicism is not a separate faith but a Christian denomination. It makes more sense to compare Islam with Christianity in general.

Prototype of VK302 armored ammunition carrier (Sonderschlepper BIII) was produced in 1940. At first, 20 vehicles were ordered followed...
