Don't remember seeing you Wolf. ;D First time was when you where RSSO of 26 Fd Regt, RCA, then on several Black Bears. Remember you translating the German Bde Comd's (??) points on debrief. Then later as a Legal O.
I was in 130 Bty 7th Tor from summer of 1965 at Richmond until my transfer to Reg Force for CFOCS in Aug 1969 at Moss Park.
I was just a lowly Gunner and later slightly more elevated Bombardier until went Reg F so didn't stand out much in the crowd. I can't remember seeing much of the QOR at Richmond. The place was so small we had to parade on different days. At Moss Park in those days 130 Bty only paraded on Saturday mornings. Didn't see much of the QOR then either except for the skirmishers and pioneers who were doing their practices on Saturdays as well. Later on when I became the driver/Sig for the regiment's sole command post, I did spend entirely too much time during schooldays in the Moss Park basement garage doing maintenance on my old 3/4 ton CP. Judging by my high school records I was absent for 30 some odd days in the last term of my Grade 13 (which I think had to be a record for someone who still manged to graduate and earn a degree later ;D)
The RSSO tour was mid '76 to '78 following which I went back to G Bty 3 RCHA until I pulled the plug, went over to the Camerons in Winnipeg as a Company Comd while doing law school/articles for four years and then going JAG. Seems I could never keep a job.
