A very minor point: the plural of sergeant major is sergeants major.

Plus: it was the "caps, winter, peaked," AKA "caps, winter ridiculous."

It's the Nerepis Biv Site now.

I should have followed up that house at Gr 123 456 with:

You remember there being houses and villages in the Gagetown Training Area
You drove into a basement in the Gagetown Training Area


Then...

You remember when there were six trees in all of CFB Suffield (Some silly Brit went and drove over one.)

When Gate Guards were real Guards, not monuments.

When Centurions were tanks and not monuments.

When "Mexican Overdrive" was not a good thing.

When RCD Hill had a T-Junction at the bottom.

When you refer to the Jump Ruck as "The Ruck", because when you joined, everyone got that model.
Your version of the "old" webbing consisted of a Y strap, a grenade pouch (for socks, naturally), a mess tin carrier (mess tins?) and a water bottle carrier.

I still have my '56 pattern mag pouches, as it was '64 'Y' yolk issued but we got those for our SMG mags where I was...weren't the mess tins/carrier used to house your Rain Gear, Paper, water absorbant?

I was pretty sure it was going to strike a chord with someone, but I didn't imagine it would be you!  ;D
