    C III R Medals

    The majority of people I know have never received their CD or clasps in a reasonable time, almost all of them had been over a year wait.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    When I was a court-attending officer both myself and the soldier were in civilian suits and ties, I was directed to by the Adjt. Of course, it being the Brandon courthouse people thought we were both lawyers as I don't think any of the other defendants dressed for their court cases.

In my life I have lived under two Prime Ministers in England, Edward Heath, and Harold Wilson and in Canada 9 different PMs, Pierre Trudeau, Joe Clark, John Turner...
