    Wanted Mess Dress

    I may have something that might fit. PM me your sizes and I'll measure my Mess Kit. I retired last month so am looking to sell. It's currently done up as Halifax Rifles. Also have Wellingtons and spurs to go with it if required.

    Simon Logan v. Her Majesty The Queen

    I have had to "release" from the Reg Force three times. Once for every Class C tour I was on. And I confirmed that the paperwork was "release" paperwork. Seemed very odd to me at the time.

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    I got a call when I was in Afg jacking me up for not showing up to the Command Team Crse in Kingston. Told them I was in Afg and been so for 4 months by that time. They begrudgingly said that was OK then. This was all after the query being passed through Div and Brigade. No one bothered to...

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    Not according to the article: "It will be mandatory for owners to take part in the buyback program, have their designated firearms rendered inoperable at the government's expense or otherwise lawfully disposed of." But until we see the actual price list and amplifying information who knows.

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    I remember having to have the Unit do an optional anonymous survey once. A Week before the final due date the Brigade COS told us that there were not enough returns so we would all be provided with a list of pers who had not yet done it. I raised the issue that it was supposed to be anonymous...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    How many molotov cocktails have you thrown at a Russian tank? I'd cut her some slack. Probably didn't finish BMQ. Besides, everyone is wearing short hair now. 🔥 :cool:

    Question - PRes

    If enrolment docs are being created, then your probably good to go. Typically here in Halifax, your contacted within a week or two to get sworn in. PArt time PRes BMQ is typically 10 weekends. Depends on who is running the course on which weekends and how close together they are. Again in...

I've found that no two reporting methodology reports the same numbers for supposedly the...

    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    Ah, but civis cost SWE which is in short supply. Plus then you then have to buy from CANEX (Mind you, you are supposed to give them first right of refusal anyhow, but I've seen that rule broken) or the civies will rat you out. Civies will likely only have hours of work 0800-1600 so what...
