    Good Morning Gents, I am looking to trade my C2 Ruck modified into a Jump Ruck for an original unmolested C2 Ruck with the correct 64 pattern style straps and rubber bag. If you have one of the earlier rubberized valises, that would be a bonus i'd pay extra for. Reason is that I need a C2 Ruck...

    The worst part was, this was at 430pm during the afternoon grocery rush. He seemed amused by my concerns. We'll see if that amusement changes sometime shortly.

    Whatever you do, please don't be like the jackass from the CH of O that I ran into in the Lawblaws grocery store on Isabel in Ottawa this afternoon wearing his kilt, boots, sporn and a long underwear shirt. Apparently ditching his tunic and cap to walk around in public was "not being in uniform"...

    Jian Ghomeshi alleges firing due to Fifty Shades of CBC

    As an avid CBC Radio 2 listener, I completely agree with you. Like it or not, it's going to be a sad day when all I can get on the dial are Astral Media owned stations shoving commercials down my throat.

    It doesn't hurt to submit a memo to your CO requesting consideration for the program. This is exactly what I and many others have successfully done. Edit: Looking back through my files, the memo was titled: Request for consideration for CFR Program

    Bangalore torpedo

    My only beef with the Picket Bangalore is the inability to join them into longer lengths as possible with the manufactured version.

    Iraq in Crisis- Merged Superthread

    No comment on the premature pullout, but enough time has passed that I think it's fair to say that the Bush Administration's handling of the war in the first few months set the country on the path to where it is now. You can't destroy a country's government and key infrastructure with no plan...

    Military Decals

    The Kit Shop guy with the Elgins (now 31 CER) had made up a bunch a while back. He also did the long yellow and black version which was in my 151A2.

    One IC on member's PERS are there serious career implications? can it be removed

A "period of observation" which accompanies an RW or C&P is an entirely different animal and the memo to lift it...
