Really glad he is focused on the important issues, between this and the updated dress regs our attrition/recruiting issues are over.There is a writing campaign to CRCN about this. I doubt it will have any effect. His issue is with the words that actually talk about the conquest of New France.
My response? Change the words! We do that all the time. The tune is great and I doubt that 1 in 50 RCN pers knows the words anyway. I can guarantee that what ever tune they come up with will be bland as wet toast.
(Yes, I know we can do things concurrently, but we all know this will eat up a lot of staff time, when it should be getting exactly none).
So we're going to get rid of a march, that no one really knows the words to anyway, because of a very subtle reference to a battle between two different countries from 250 years in the past. Awesome.
I wonder if clown shoes and red noses come in FR?
Edit to add: no, FR clown shoes with steel toes would definitely be a custom job, and most are in fact, fairly flammable plastic. Probably also bad for greasy decks and no electrical shock rating either. On the plus side, following safety standards for PPE seems optional in todays RCN.
