Swingline: Bang on suggestion. Regards:
the SSF does share that lineage and could only enhance the relationship.
57chevy: They (FSSF) set the example for Special Forces around the world.
Tested, through blood, through  esprit de corp, through hell.  :salute:

If you don't mind your 1957 Chevrolet's chrome yellow:

They stayed with that colour until 1986. For sure it was Accident Squad, because only they had sirens, and it is a two-door. They had big radio aerials on the passenger side rear fender, and would fly a black pennant whenever someone got killed in an accident.
( I do not see an aerial on the car in the photo. )
Cars like that patrolled the Gardinder Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway, as well as all other roadways in Metro Toronto..

Same car MTP 057 with the old "Keep it Beautiful" plates:

( Interesting to compare the rear highway safety light to what they have today. And still keep getting rear-ended. )

I miss them too, Scoty. I've only owned two cars in my life. A Chysler Newport and a Buick LeSabre. The Newport - it had absolutely no "road feel", and, living in the city, was a nightmare parallel park. I never could find a passenger side mirror for it. I sold the LeSabre shortly after I retired. I know it is still on the road. It had those "Keep it beautiful" plates I mentioned. I kept the plates. Drive the wife's SUV now.
But, when I was young, I got to really put the pedal down on a few of the remaining Cadillacs, Bonnevilles and Oldsmobiles. Incredibly smooth suspension, even over street car tracks, with awesome acceleration. ( The braking not quite as awesome.  :) ) They were a lot of fun, but were gone all too soon.

I guess i was one of the first members of the Special Service force in Petawawa as i was one of the HQ OR clks in E1.  It was always an interesting job and we loved to be one of Christies critters as he always fed us well.

There were a lot of fond memories and lessons learned for themilitary and life in general and it was without a doubt the best start to a career that a young private could get.

As to an earlier comment about what we were supposed to fight with that we seemed to not have the proper equipment to defend ourselves.  that was why we were light and quick remember all those Bde EX's and the moves.  The plan was to strike at the enemy and move before he could get a fix for his guns or planes. 

I still have one of the original wood and brass crest plaques that were given to HQ staff officers upon their posting out of the unit.

SSF HQ Welcome.
I remeber General C bombing up
in his jeep as I was checking out
the fluid level in the hub's on my
ferrett scour car,,, bawling me out
for not having my black coverall's
on. Then he cracked up and said
"April Fool's". Jumped back in his
jeep and took off. Weirdest thing is
it was April Fool's Day. Go Figure.
