    Do reserve units allow rental of mess / drill hall for private events?

    Being on OIC Armoury myself the drill is pretty simple (albeit costly) The non-NPF areas can be rented out by the hour or by the day Vimy Ridge Armoury in Lethbridge for example is 1750 per day. Add to that liability insurance, booze licence, and duty nco/officer it gets pricey. Depending on the...

    "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification" and the Heritage Transformation

    I'll toss a couple nickels into this seeing as pennies are gone.  I see a lot of comment about how much this will cost.  I have to ask has anyone considered the because we are transitioning to a new US style Velcro everything to your uniform style of combat clothing and that the method we attach...

    CF 100 : Leave Pass [Merged]

    Jeff Have to agree with you there buddy.  The "paperless community" concept is a direct cause of officers inability (I can say this cuz I are one) to issue orders with a map model and FMP, my god if powerpoint is down we can't issue orders (rant over)

    T4`s or equivalent

    I highly recommend you re-visit the rules.  They have until midnight to postmark T4's, not deliver them.

    Uniform when abroad

    Ok from the perspective of one of those folks who approves this kind of thing. Is it possible YES. As this is not a leave type situation (I am assuming the original poster is Reservist on Class A service) there is not requirement to ask for leave. If however it is an appropriate military...

    Return of MATS TECH trade to the reserves?

    Thread Hijack - Lets give factual information here.  41 Svc Bn is not taking over ASU Calgary.  ASU Calgary is closing, 41 Svc Bn is taking over some (not even close to all) institutional support roles but most of the support ASU Calgary provided will come out of ASB Edmonton.

    CEOTP (Continuing Ed Officer Trg Plan) 2003-2018 [Merged]

    I'm a CEOTP (Prev Non-Commissioned Service) heres the story. While the administration is a pain in the rear. Let me dispel some myths.  Your effective date of commissioning is the day you ceased to be an NCM (you may wear the OCdt slip-ons until you pass BMOQ2) but you will be paid in the the...

    Occupational and Component Transfers (OT/CT/VOT) During and After BMQ (Merged)

    Well, you're in now and frankly an OT to infantry won't happen quickly (seeing as they are way overborne) sooooo. 2 Options really. quit now, or embrace your choice, keep your nose clean, excel in everything you do and ask for the OP stream as soon and as often as you can.  Being in a dismounted...

    Former Soldier's Dreams Crushed by Shooting Accusations - Article

    I'll weigh in a little here as there seems to be a rather large misconception that a mbr must turn in all their kit in order to be release.  This is simply put BS.  There is a section in each AJAG Region called claims for and against the crown. If a soldier doesn't turn in their kit the release...

    This guy at work....

    As part of the medical release process this happens. so while I wouldn't be inclined to buy his other story he could in fact be a mbr of the reg force on Vocational Rehab, this dude did it. http://news.gc.ca/web/article-eng.do?m=/index&nid=516419#cn-cont food for thought

    Benefits Cut...

    Folks after just having time to read this particular thread let's put some perspective on this. The department has to slash 1.9 Billion dollars, in a short amount of time. So IR (a personal choice) doesnt look like a gravy train any more maybe just maybe it'll dissuade some folks from going on...

    Commissionaires

    It happens at at least 3 bases that I can think of (generally by commissionaires now) Esquimalt and Halifax had rifleman at the gates and Winnipeg still checks ID at the gate

    The Shaving Superthread- All You Want and More....

    Pusser frankly theres no need to prove it.  The CF has adopted the NFPA standards for SCBA's (the new breathing kit) Firefighters used to have beards to and draw their breathing air from a little pocket around the nozzle caused by the pressure of water.  Guess what firefighters don't do it...
