Hey Green, I think he‘s in the Toronto area, but the 905 area code covers a
spread from about St Cathrines/Niagara/Hamilton to the southern edge of
Toronto...more or less. As for exact location, I‘ll let Maj. Mayne take it
from there...I figured I‘d give you the general geographic idea as I‘m not
sure if you‘re from S. Ontario or not. If you are, then I appologize for
insulting your intelligence. If you‘re not, then I hope I‘ve helped at least
a little.

Mr. Brian Walford, formal eh??? Yes the Armouries are still just across
from the bus station. When I was in the Windsor Regiment and on parade on
Saturday mornings, it was tough breathing when that Sherman started up in a
cloud and it drifted across the parade square and engulfed us all. Not a
sound would come out of anyone tho‘. We sucked it up, like good troopers
did. Ha. That was in 62. Then came the RCDs for 3 and then my present job.

To Dave Willard. Dave, you and I watched the same parade. I from the RCD
barracks as my arm was in a cast. My ancestry is Irish so you can
understand when I say that when the pipes were heard by this, then, young
soldier. I had goose bumbles all over and the pride that welled up inside
me was something to behold. To watch the famed Black Watch in full parade
dress, Blue balmorals, red hackles, white sporrans and spats, marching 6
abreast not 3, and not a single man out of step, coming from their barracks
was an especially beautiful site for a young soldier to see. I stand to be
corrected but I think both the 1st and 2nd Battalions The Black Watch were
on parade that day as, like you said there seemed to be a never ending line
of marching men with sporrans swaying to the left and right as they
marched. I‘m almost inclined to say there were two thousand men of The
Black watch that marched onto the GOC‘s parade square that day. I can
remember to this day of wanting to shout at the top of my voice of how so
very proud they made me feel. Thanks Dave for bringing that back to me. I
only put in three years but was and am very proud of that. Like you my
oldest son spent six and a half years in The PPCLI and Airborne Regiment. I
only wish he would have been able to see the same thing I did. My friend
Larry MacDonald was on the parade square that day and I‘ll bet he felt the
same way as we did. Audax Et Celer

Hey Frank, take a deep breath. It all comes and goes so relax. As for
Samolia, the Airborne wasn‘t in the role of peacekeepers there. They were
sent as peacemakers. there is quite a difference. I know because I had my
son in law there and 2 "adopted sons" there. I have a sign in front of me
now and it says "Keep the Airborne-Disband the Liberals". I‘d dearly like
to get my hands on that idiot Minister myself for the idiotic thing that he
did. It‘s not pleasant when your son calls and is crying like a baby, on
the day his Regiment was disbanded. Of course show me a politician that
thinks he knows what he‘s doing and I‘ll show you a liar. Now you got me
going. Anyway Frank, I haven‘t seen this many posts on this means in a
long time, so whatever is talked about, it‘s bringing people out of the
woodwork. Have a nice day.

I recall the parade also, and yes it did stir a real sense of pride. Those
were the days of having regimental bands and getting goose bumps when the
march past was played.
On that note, there were a couple of incidents that I can still see in my
mind. One was the conflict between the regimental bands during the march
past. I was RCD at the time and we were preceded by the RCHA and being
followed by the RHR Black Watch. We were marching along and as we
approached the reviewing stand, the RCD band played our march past and as we
were passing the reviewing stand, the RHR Pipes and Drums started which as
you know, was at a different cadence than the others. If you were in one of
the last ranks, immediately in front of the pipes and drums, it had a
disconcerting impact on your marching. The other was watching a change step
occurring as it rippled through the in line marching regiments. I often
wonder what would have happened if we had a rifle regiment on parade also.
Good memories.
Regards
Larry MacDonald

Concentration in Wainwright in 1961. Just finished trades training in
Vimy. Snotty nosed 18 just year old. Memory is really foggy, but do
remember RCHA, Queens Own, PPCLI. LdSH forgive me my sins if that is
abbreviated wrongly and many others. In those days it was a Brigade but I
suppose that today it would be a Division. Did basic in Gagetown with the
Black Watch and still thought that only barbarians marched faster than 104
and wore trousers. Still do as a matter of fact. Was terrified of L/Cpl‘s,
and hid from Sgt. Mjr‘s. In those days, that was a sign of intelligence.
Thanks for the memories guys. Take care and God bless.

I can tell you exactly what happens. I started my soldiering days in
Winnipeg with the Royal Winnipeg Rifles. On any garrison parade we had the
Fort Garry Horse in front of us with no band and the Queens Own Cameron
Highlanders with pipes and drums behind us while we had a brass band vice
the traditional drums and bugles.
It was a real juggling act. We would step short so the Garries could get
ahead the our band would step the pace up from 120 to the Regimental pace of
140 which the Garries would try and ignore as we closed the distance. This
conveniently put us well ahead of the Camerons who then would slow down to
the pipes and drums by which time we were trying to slow down to 120 and
stepping short so the Camerons could catch up. Somehow it all seemed to work
out.
The other fun thing was small arms drill. as a Rifle Regiment we did things
a bit differently than the rest of the Army. Back in the Lee Enfield days we
didn‘t slope arms but carried them at the trail. we also used the trail with
the FN C1 especially when we did a double past..there was a fun
time....doubling along in column of companies trying to maintain our
dressing. The other drill movement with the FN that caused confusion was
that we presented arms from the order instead of the shoulder and reduced it
to two drill movements instead of three. It was always a hoot when one of
our officers was on a parade with other units and forgot to order shoulder
arms before presenting arms.

Korea Medals.
The newest medal was the "Canadian Volunteer Service Medal for
Korea", issued to
recognize our "Volunteer Service".
The "Korea Medal" is the official designation of the medal issued to
Canadians, however, most veterans of the war refer it as the "Korean
War Medal"

Bob Frank:
The destruction of the Airborne was a disgrace, but always remember the
Regiment had little or no help from the Green Gaggle only Field personnel
and not all Arms people ether rose to its defense. The politically correct
civil servants cheered, a disruptive influence real soldiers were being
done away with, politically correct yes men rose fast.
Also remember how in late 60s the men who wore Fort Garry House, The
Canadian Highland Regiment The Black Watch, 1st 7 2nd Bn., The Queens
Own Rifles of Canada 1st 2nd Bn, The Canadian Guards 1st 2nd Bn, The
Royal Canadian Army Service Corps, The Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps,
The Royal Canadian Army Ordnance Corps, The Royal Canadian Army Electrical
Mechanical Engineers, The Canadian Provost Corps, and The Canadian
Intelligence Corps, all felt about the loss of their identity.
Many retired, many hung on and attempted to hold some expertise, "God
bless em". My hat remains off to CEME for at least getting some of it back.
And to All Ranks of The Regiments, Battalions and most of all the Battle
Schools for holding on to what they did manage to retain.
Recruits can hold their "Time Out Cards" up
any time now.
The politically correct of the day jumped on the Tri Service band wagon,
many rank and file looked at the immediate monetary rewards of being classed
with the Civil Service. We really needed the Empire builders of the period
who put career over service loyalty as we wound up with such things as The
Administration Branch and Training Command. The Arm Chair Generals clapped,
and following them, the two year in a field posting get your ticket punched
group, has replaced the Identity, loyalty to peers subordinates, and
command that comes with a strong sense of total worth and particularly the
Esprit de Core of the destroyed Royal Canadian Army.
This was the Army that between 1960 and 67 was good enough to take any
military competition it entered from Tank Gunnery to Cooking, and sports
went bad either. Who remembers that in the early 60s the first Canadian
Hockey team in Moscow stationed there were basically RCASC Personnel
Okay a few C Pro C
I never served with The Airborne, managed two tours with the SSF, and
"I would always prefer to eat **** with a Trooper then a beef steak with the
politically correct SOBs who destroyed a battle ready force". Always
Remember it was the presently in power political party who for the best of
small " l" reasons did most of the damage. Oh well that‘s what you get when
you political leaders make long term decisions on only current opinion
polls.
By the way always ready to back up my opinions with examples of waste of
both good personnel, equipment or money, by example of names dates and
locations.
For the lads serving now "God Bless and watch not only your front" and just
to prove it not happens to us suggested back ground reading would be "Late
Sgt Major" a poem by Kipling.

Just a Reply to Mr. Lawson. It seems that we have a common ground when it
comes to Collenette and the hot air city group. Tri service was the reason
I got out. To Gunner, if you didn‘t walk the walk, you‘ve got no say. If
all you did was a leg land tour then you missed out on probably the
greatest experience a man could have in the army. I‘m not talking form
experience because I served in the senior Regiment of the senior corps.If
all you‘ve heard about Somalia is from what you read and saw on TV, then
you didn‘t hear all of the story. Granted what happened was totally
disgusting but it was taken care of. If you believe half of what was shown
on TV from 1 Commando, then you‘re very gullible. The media made it a whole
lot worse than what it was. Do you think that Somalia was an isolated
incident in the history of our military? Ask guys that were present in
Cyprus during the 1st tour there. What about a certain Regiment, in the
last couple of years, that has presented a whole bunch of problems in
different theaters of UN deployment? You‘re right about it being
embarrassing to all of us who have served and are serving, but in my
opinion, you don‘t disband a Regiment because a few bad apples screwed up
royally. You take care of the immediate problem decisively and swiftly.
Obviously the higher ups at the time didn‘t have the smarts or the balls to
do it, and therefore the responsibility lands in their laps for later
problems.You‘re right about the Airborne Regiment being gone and it won‘t
ever come back but the way it was done and the reasons they gave were
nothing but heifer dustpolite eh? I guess what I‘m saying is that you
better have a lot more facts than what you have, when you start making
statements like you have been. Regards

I believe that the Liberals, had previously decided to disband the Airborne
Regiment, due to its obselesence as a means of saving money . Ultimatley
the "Somalia Affair", hastened the wheels into motion .

There was nothing obsolete about the CAR. Airborne is simply a means of
delivery and certainly isn‘t all the CAR, or any similar unit, is about.
Perhaps disbanding the CAR was simply part of the cost of re-establishing the
regular regiments‘ third battalions. I suspect the CAR had many fewer
proponents in the halls of power than the three regular infantry regiments.
>Ultimatley the "Somalia Affair", hastened the wheels into motion .
Politicians are rarely so transparent. This was simply the excuse presented for
public consumption.
