Rhodesian said:Read my post again. The FSSF honors were only carried by The Canadian Airborne Regiment. Like I said, I was a member of the Bde. The Regiment specialized in airborne operations with it's force multipliers. The only thing special about the SSF was The Canadian Airborne Regiment battle group. The SSF was born when The Regiment moved to pet and ceased to exist on disbandment
Rhodesian said:The OP was the one trying to link the "new" SSF to the FSSF. And yes, I know The Regiment carried the battle honors of 1 CPB...but, we weren't discussing them. We routinely had members of 1 CPB and the FSSF attend our functions.
The idea that the SSF held it's soldiers to a higher PT standard is also false. The SSF had soldiers in all shapes and sizes and completed the same PT tests as other Bdes.
Rhodesian said:Lets be real. The SSF was just a brigade, just like 1 CBG. People like to see the SSF as a modern version of the FSSF....well, it wasn't. Actually, the Battle Honours of the FSSF were carried by The Canadian Airborne Regiment. The part of the SSF that most other parts hated.
BTW, I was in the SSF from 1986-1992
I remember England...Abram Tank said:Good day sorry about that it should of been AMF(L) not AML.
Yes Bruce we known each other.
You were I think in Bty HQ with Shaun Moyles at the time in the CP.
We were also in Norway and England together as was JR Ewing.
