    The last Hitler's treasure

    Another one of Hitler's great strategies... destroy vehicles and equipment out of spite but still fight on! A very magnificent find, though. A little late for the Kriegsmarine boys...

    webbing or tactical vest

    It really depends where you end up for your BMQ course. If, by luck, you end up in Gagetown or Borden you will probably be issued a tacvest. If you should find yourself doing basic in St. Jean, you will be issued the webbing. As far as I know, it's still the same. Ah, webbing.

    Any favourite BMQ memories?

    This is not from BMQ but similar circumstances anyway... It was another inspection morning for us on our QL3s... our Mbdr was very hard on us to have clean, clean, clean rifles. It would take nothing more than a milimetre of carbon to be caught in the fury of swearing and yelling. However, this...

    Any favourite BMQ memories?

    St. Jean still gives the cap badge after your successful completion of the Drill Test as far as I know. Atleast on my course that was the case. Cheers

    Recoil by Andy McNab

    I read B20 while in the hospital and I enjoyed it. As said before, it is simple but effective. I didn't read it for a history lesson so the inaccuracies didn't bother me so much. I had no idea he wrote fiction as well and I do like his style of writing so I'll have to start from the bottom of...

    Any favourite BMQ memories?

    So far, after a day at the firing range during -30 blizzards our staff took us out to some woods on the outskirts of Farnham. They had us put on our white camoflauge, balaclavas and mukluks included, then explained what they wanted us to do. The instructor would stand on the road outside of the...

    It is very touching to see the Dutch, still, remember the sacrificies made for them during the war. The Canadians were not lost in vain thanks to depths of their hearts. Great story, thanks for sharing.

    From Father to Son, Last Words to Live By

    :'( I wish the best for Jordan and his mother. Sgt. King may no longer be with his family on Earth but he is undoubtedly watching over them vigilantly from the skies. Rest in peace.

    Wondering what BASIC TRAINING is like? Watch the video. (BASIC UP)

    Eland's post reminded me of a time when one of the recruits in our platoon addressed rank improperly. One of our Sergeant's had just recently been given the promotion from Master Corporal. However, this guy was recoursed into our platoon after his promotion. We were in the middle of class, he...

    God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

    Great story. Thanks for sharing, I'm going to share it as well. I've been away for Christmas and it's not fun at all. The fact that she recognized that and sent out a care package to somebody to brighten their holidays is truly what the holiday spirit is about - helping others.
