    Soldier Operational Clothing and Equipment Modernization

    silly question. Is the old jacket not still THE jacket? I thought the new thing with all the pockets was a shirt? I kept both of mine because i thought they were going to carry over.

    Soldier Operational Clothing and Equipment Modernization

    I honestly regret switching. I liked the look and feel of the old NCD's better. And frankly, the lack of pockets made me feel less stupid about the amount of time it took to check myself over if something went missing.

    How common are tracer rounds

    I don't know if this is helpful information, but I work at a CFAD in my day job and we can't issue tracer to a couple of ranges due to the risk of brush fires. I can ask tomorrow for the specifics if you'd like.

    RCAF Ball Cap

    Logistik Unicorp has available (in my opinion) a poor quality, ill fitting, plain black ball cap for issue to sea cadets. I feel like it's a slippery slope to request that stuff up from Logistik. At least the private purchase ones on the west coast were comfortable.

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    if this is still the case, it is only applicable to Dockyard Workers as they have separate unions on both coasts that negotiate for them separate from PSAC. The remainder of the public service fought long and hard to insure that equal work was paid equal wages in the mid 2000's. I started as a...

    AOR Replacement & the Joint Support Ship (Merged Threads)

    You're wrong about Asterix not carrying ammunition. It stops in Bedford at least twice a year to load up, and not just for the ships force protection.

    MARS being renamed?

    I thought it was specifically for the units of Land Force Central Area, and that none of the other Land Force Areas were willing to adopt it?

    Royal Australian Navy’s Entire Amphibious Force Operating Together For The First

    I think they're referring to the RAN, which has existed continuously in some form since 1901.

    New Royal Navy Warfare Officer pin

    It's not an allowed order of dress for naval officers. from https://www.canada.ca/en/services/defence/caf/military-identity-system/dress-manual/chapter-5/annex-c.html: Sweaters. No. 3C order of dress: Nothing shall be sewn on the sweater; the Remembrance Day poppy may be pinned to the sweater...

    Arid small pack?

    what happened to the pack covers we issued in Afghanistan? I worked in clothing stores at KAF and we had tri-walls full of arid covers, like the old winter white ones, that more or less elasticed around the pack and hid everything except for the straps. Same thing for the camel back, except that...

    Army Captain recommends bringing sex workers up to the lines to relieve stress

    Didn't Bernard Montgomery set up regimental brothels to some success? We went back to pips and crowns, pearl grey, and the executive curl, there's very clearly a precedent for sex workers.

    Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP)-RMC 2000 - 2018 [Merged]

    It depends on the course. HIE 208 consisted of three essays and a weekly discussion. BAE 238 was one group assignment, weekly discussions and an exam. I would say I read for a bout three hours a week per course.

    Sexual Assault & Sexual Misconduct in the CF

    Admittedly, I didn't read the whole transcript and that bit about the sink was pointed out to me by someone else and at the time, while the wording is awful, it didn't seem to me like an unreasonable question, mostly because I was under the impression that both ankles were bound and that she was...

    Sexual Assault & Sexual Misconduct in the CF

    While his choice of words may not have been the best, did you ever read the court transcripts to get the quote in context? Pages 444-445 finds the judge trying to determine the physics of penetration when the female has her fanny in a sink (the word used is passing) and her ankles held together...
