    RCD Model Decals

    Wasn't sure exactly where I should put this query, but Mil History seemed appropriate.  I build scale models as a hobby and am nearing completion of a Staghound Mk. I vehicle.  The model came with markings for numerous British Regiments, and the XII Manitoba Dragoons. I have searched every model...

    SOLD OUT (under New Vets Charter)

    I am writing to try and get more awareness out there regarding the VAC Disability Award system that was brought in with the New Veterans Charter of 2006.  This was touted by the Government as a better system than the old monthly pension system that has been around for over 50 years.  Native...

    Q Ray

    I tried searching and came up empty here; I've been searching for something "official" that allows for wearing of the Q-Ray bracelets in uniform. Does any such pub exist? Aside from seeing countless troops wearing them, including MWO-CWO ranks, I've found nothing concrete. It would be nice to...

    An Army IS a war machine

    I didn't want to put this into a condolence page as it just isn't the right place. However, at the end of the CANWEST news story on our 3 more fallen in Afghanistan, they had Sgt. Leger's mother on the news as well. I'm sure ol Jack Layton was liking what she had to say, but that was NOT the...

    Why does Haig get the shaft?

    I realise that this is a thread on Canadian Military history, however, due to our close historical ties with Britain and specifically with respects to our involvement in the first world war, I figured I'd toss this out there.....I recently finished reading a book on yet another of many books I...

    Army Responsible for Violent Crime

    Wow!  I've seen and heard some crazy stuff in my years, but today's evening news took the cake.  I just don't understand that there are people out there that actually believe this kind of drivel.  The A Channel in Ottawa was running a story on the violent crime the city has been experiencing as...

    Where's the B Vehicles?

    A bit of rant is about to start here - RHQ had a PWT 1&2 range today in the Petawawa training area.  We were finished shooting & ready to leave around 1430.  When the RSO called for our bus to come out and pick us up, we were told we'd have to wait a few hours because the bus that brought us out...

    Wow! The Corps finally has an up to date video on it's recruiting page at dnd.ca.  The old one that had been there for years was of an 8CH guy extolling the virtues of the C1 and postings to Germany.  ;D  The new ones for NCM and Officer were very well done - good layout and flow.  I did find it...
