    Seeking information and photo of Medium support vehicle system - postal version

    I am presuming that you are a civilian. I would suggest that you contact the Royal Canadian Logistics Service (RCLS) Association Branch nearest you. Perhaps they can get you in contact with the RCLS Historian. Or you may try to contact the Canadian Forces Logistics Museum. Please note that...

    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    The Public Services and Procurement Canada website for the Future Fighter Capability Project has now been updated to reflect that the GOC has entered the final phase of the procurement process with the US Gov't and Lockheed Martin. The earliest delivery date is 2025. I wonder when we might...

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    ADM(MAT) only buys equipment for the Environments but it doesn't decide the requirements. The user (RCN/CA/RCAF/Joint decides on what it needs and when. Besided on the information given by the user and in consulation with the user, ADM(MAT) decides and implements the procurement strategy. As...

    The Royal Navy reintroduced black hats for submariners 6 months ago. This is the first time black hat covers have been worn for over 50 years.

    The Log Br went RCLS just when I was on the way out. I still think in terms of the Br and not RCLS. Cheers

    When I was much younger and naive I thought how wonderful it would be if the Log Br would split up and come under the respective environments (Services) again. Many, many years later and in talking with my fellow Loggies from all environments, we agree, the Br ain't perfect but it works...

    I was being facetious, but .... I am left handed and the world has been against me. The FNC1 ejected empty cartridges on the right which meant I suffered from having the occasional hot casing in my face. The CAF only buy scissors for right handed people. I hope that the new black hat is...

    Actually the BN will need to at least incl the fol: historical background of the RCN wearing the black hat - prove tradition. when you should wear this? Winter only? On ship only? how the morale of RCN will dramatically improve and will attract % more recruits to the RCN - to justify the...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    In the last election, O'Toole published a platform that I thought was reasonable, well presented and sustainable. Unfortunately he shot himself in the foot by changing positions during the campaign and the message became muddled and confusing.

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    I'm not a political scientist and to be honest I don't earnestly follow the minutiae details of Cdn politics. From what little that I know or think that I understand, I do have the following questions: How/when to did the CPC moved further to the right of the political spectrum? Are they out of...

    Liberal Minority Government 2021 - ????

    There is a reliable source (sarcasm / humour), a renown British psychic who made many predictions about Canada for 2022. Some major highlights : PM Trudeau will face a serious scandal regarding Chinese influence / money in the 2021 election. Received kick backs. 2:33 Doug Ford will rise in...

    Mental Health Issues From Freedom Convoy? -split from Freedom Convoy protests

    I recently retired from the CAF with over 35 years. Unfortunately for me, I can relate to these stories. We can agree that : only a mental health professional can accurately diagnosis what this phantom honking is and whether people are suffering from a mental injury. As a corollary...

    Mental Health Issues From Freedom Convoy? -split from Freedom Convoy protests

    MH can be directly linked to a physical injury - total agree. As for PTSD diagnosis I leave that to mental health professionals. Someone can say that they suffer from PTSD but in reality it maybe something else. When I came back, I was warned by a good friend of mine, a nurse, not to...

    Mental Health Issues From Freedom Convoy? -split from Freedom Convoy protests

    I am not an expert in Mental Health. I don't think that you can compare mental health treatment the same as a physical injury treatment. While on a bridging exercise years ago, I broke two fingers on my right hand and it was extremely painful, but it healed and it doesn't bother me anymore...

    Mental Health Issues From Freedom Convoy? -split from Freedom Convoy protests

    Mental health issues is a serious problem. Given all the training that we (CAF, Police, Emergency Services) have received regarding mental health, suicide prevention, sexual harassment, I find it somewhat disheartening to see some people trivialize mental health symptoms, however to the people...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    A friend of mine, who is a CPC member, told me that he has been receiving quite a number of urgent communications from CPC HQ asking for a financial contribution. Apparently the Party can't hold a leadership convention and be prepared to fight a possible election due to a minority government...
