I don't buy into the notion that giving troops badges, and medals is an "inferiority complex". Unless the RN, and RAN are also trying to be American?Canada and its military have an inferiority complex therefore it has to overcompensate to feel better about itself.....
I think the old Canadian notion of having as little on our uniforms as possible so we don't look "too American", is just as backward as trying to ape everything the USA does.
Will silly moustache "wings" for NWO's fix all the CAFs problems? No. Will no having badges on our uniforms fix all of the CAF's problems? No.
Will moustache "wings" make a few people feel a bit better, and maybe "suck it up" for a few more years? Maybe... A French artilleryman is supposed to have said "A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of coloured ribbon"...
