    New Royal Navy Warfare Officer pin

    Odd that I read it that way as a Naval Officer and have been told the same by Senior RCN Officers and NCMs alike. Perhaps some clarity would be useful from the RCN leadership (they should probably remove the sharepoint references and links from DWAN if the intent is as interpreted by the Chiefs...

    New Royal Navy Warfare Officer pin

    I would love to see the direction as even the "RCN Dress Regulations" posted to the RCN Dress Committee sharepoint says the same thing (and actually adds CPO1s to the requirement). You're right though - who cares... why follow the rules we established ourselves. EDIT to add: and if this magical...

    New Royal Navy Warfare Officer pin

    So how to we square these things right out of the Dress Instructions? https://www.canada.ca/en/services/defence/caf/military-identity-system/dress-manual/chapter-5/annex-c.html " Sweaters. No. 3C order of dress: Nothing shall be sewn on the sweater; the Remembrance Day poppy may be pinned to...

    New Royal Navy Warfare Officer pin

    Sadly (or not) your Chief is wrong. This is under the "Sweaters" headline and as such, if wearing a sweater a Naval Officer must wear a necktie and, ergo, must wear a long sleeved shirt.

    Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDVs)

    Missions like CARIBBE require long "on station" times, as the AO/Patrol Box is usually quite far out to sea (think days of transit) to maximize surveillance. Even once "on top" and successful in an interdiction, the process can take many hours to days. We tend to even stretch the limits of...

    Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDVs)

    The range and 5 day endurance are not suitable, unfortunately.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    The challenge here relates entirely to his position as the Deputy Commander of a bi-national Command. He knew, or ought reasonably to have known, that any extra-marital affair would be viewed very unfavourably by his US CoC. I agree that nothing was contrary to Canadian law or CSD... only...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Actually, I agree with most of what you posted. Except, when things finally "officially" dissolved, some of us Canadians had to explain to our US counterparts what was happening when an Assessor suddenly couldnt perform his duties from home. So, for that joyous duty - which I performed - I find...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    A very cool system for some circumstances but hamstrung by limitations placed upon it - particularly for OTH operations in ships without air search RADARs and IFF. Plenty of potential if appropriately "unlocked"

    Helicopter Operations

    It is - the argument is if a designated flying course and speed is required for launch and/or recovery or if the RPAS has a large enough envelope to make it immaterial. Also, it might be such a short launch and recovery that hoisting the shapes might take longer than the launch itself. Using...

    Helicopter Operations

    I am sorry - but (MARS/NWO) pedants gonna pedant... It is, directly from the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, a "vessel restricted in her ability to manoeuvre". IAW with those same regulations those vessels that are considered RAM are: a) a vessel engaged in laying...

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    Agree. Wouldn't it be nice, though, to supply our own tankers for FOB operations instead of relying on tankers (and crews!) from KSKA and KPIT? Tankers are already High Demand/Low Avail and at some point TRANSCOM might need to reallocate for the fight away from home.

    Canadians at NORAD

    Well.... we could certainly spend time in Canada. We just need to quarantine for 14 days (or less if using the AB pilot project). So, you make the most use of Christmas/New Years leave combined with Short, Annual and Weekend you *could* expend eight annual and get a full week in Canada - worst...
