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

    Don't I know it! This is not an easy file to deal with, that's for sure!! Edited to add: The file is still at the staff level so no decisions have yet been made one way or the other by leadership.

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

    Let's not confuse the Royal Designations with the Divisional Nomenclature. Both are separate issues and both have different levels of approval. The CDS can approve the use of "Royal" for the Branches and Corps, whereas the Divisional Nomenclature requires MND approval since CFOOs (Canadian...

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

    Nothing is official yet and the CANFORGEN and/or CANARMYGEN will be released upon MND approval.

    “Canadian Forces admits H1N1 Vaccine causes severe adverse reaction"

    And? I feel for you that you've had to suffer so much because of the vaccine, but I don't quite understand the point of your post.

    Current Trends in CF Releases

    I don't have the trends on that yet. There are a bunch of studies that I want to conduct in the new year but right now my ideas are all over the map so I need to sit down with these thoughts and ideas and make them more cohesive so that the studies are relevant. I'll get back to you on this once...

    Current Trends in CF Releases

    Yes, I'm going to weigh in here but I speak only from the perspective of the Army. I'm hearing (or reading, as the case may be) a lot of "the sky is falling" based on anecdotal evidence of "my brother's cousin's dog's groomer said...." yet, in all honesty, the numbers do not support that...

    Returning to RegF (CT from PRes)

    M2A There are other factors involved. Now, I'm speaking strictly of the Army Managed MOSIDs which, for NCMs, are: Crmn, Arty Fd, Arty AD, Infmn, Cbt Engr, ACISS, Geo Tech, Veh Tech, EO Tech, Wpn Tech L, and Mat tech. Any other MOSID I cannot speak with any authority or fidelity. However, for...

    Returning to RegF (CT from PRes)

    To be clear, I'm not advising that reservists would be better off to release and then join the Reg F through a CFRC. I merely explained why we opted for the "first past the post" approach for the Pte/Cpl ranks rather than merit listing these people. My example of someone releasing and trying...

    Returning to RegF (CT from PRes)

    Unfortunately, meriting and boarding are very labourious and the shop that is responsible for CTs is understaffed, especially in relation to the number of CT applications that they receive. Don't even bother going into the "they should hire more people" discussion because that belongs in another...

    Returning to RegF (CT from PRes)

    I'm not trying to rain on your parade here, but I do need to inject some reality on something that the leadership you've been talking to (whoever they may be) within your old Regiment may not know. Yes, there is currently a leadership gap within the Infantry at the MCpl, Sgt and WO ranks. Note...

    Passchendaele movie

    We don't know for a fact that it's not receiving Federal Government funding. He may very well have applied for it and received it or is still waiting for the outcome of his application. There are many programs available to Canadian artists that they may apply for and often do receive. I've seen...

    Civi protesters, repect and the CDS's speech merged topics

    Don't sweat it. The CDS can hold his own against a group of ignorant 17 - 19 year olds. My guess is that he'll even take the time to try to educate them.

    Interest In A National Service Banner?

    Try resubmitting it, but this time go through the Public Affairs chain. A lot of times what happens is that a Brigade or Area will run with something and as it catches on, ADM PA takes over and makes it a national endeavour. It's really not a DHH thing.

    Class C back pay from 2004

    I suggest you go back to the orderly room and have the pay clerks put a pay query up through the system. They should not have let you walk out of that office without a) a concrete answer; or b) taking some action to get the answer for you. Now it is very possible that "they" (whoever they are)...

    Bizarre phantom pay!

    And bring the CF pay system into the new millenium? Surely you jest!  ;D

    Bizarre phantom pay!

    Yes, I agree with Michael. Go talk to your Orderly Room. Having said that, it probably is your travel claim. A month in Gagetown could very well get you that amount when you figure in incidentals and/or FOA if you spent any time in the field. Since the deposit was made on the 8th, it will not be...

    MILITARY ATTRACTS VIOLENT LOUTS

    We are actually not the Canadian Armed Forces. We are the Canadian Forces. The "armed" got removed some 15 or 20 years ago..ish. I don't remember exactly when.

    Bilingual Regiment Names

    I just spoke to a Lieutenant Colonel here who is from the Camerons. I stand corrected, sort of  ;D I should have used the GGFG as an example. However, the Cameron's were supposed to be designated as a bilingual unit, but when the whole designation thing came out, only the band was designated...

    Bilingual Regiment Names

    . Not exactly true. A unit's language designation has absolutely nothing to do with whether the unit's name is French or English. It has everything to do with location. And unit names are never translated. Example: The Cameron Highlanders - bilingual designated unit (being in Ottawa and all)...
