    Non-Jumping Paras and Scots Sharing Kilts

    Highland Regts are entitled to kilts bought and payed for by the Goverment. They are not ceramonials, they are just as for our DEUs. I still have my kilt from the E&Ks when I left. I payed extra for the double pleats.

    Non-Jumping Paras and Scots Sharing Kilts

    Kilts are CF supplied, only ceremonial dress is puchased for the Regt by the Regt or Guilds. Each Regt does get some monies for those. But it is very small. Only the Foot Guards, Fort Henrys, RNBRs and some other tourist Regts get theirs paid, as I believe out of a tourism.

    C Sqn standing up

    Well, when I was down a CTC. The pioneers were looking on the books. As for asst troop, they may have gone. But there was a course review last spring. Look, at the tanks. They were headed for the range now a fresh coat of paint and gone. So what ever I was smoking was the same as the rest of CTC.

    CADPAT Rain Gear

    Well maybe you should look at the jackets some of our drivers wear. If oil and diesel doesn't eat Gor, why does my own have labels "Don't expose jacket to oils". I have a damn whole in one of my sleeves, after I splashed gas on it.

    The Inevitable Debate on Half Masting

    It was during WW2 that the Flag remained half staff during the war. It was only raised on 1 July for those yrs. From my wife's point, it does not have to be every flag across Canada. Just it is a form of honour given to our friends. It's lowered for members of Parliament when they pass. In...
