    Fair winds and following seas, Ma'am. Rest in Peace; your work is all done here.

    Informing the Army’s Future Structure

    Given the recent moves by the government to honour No. 2 Construction Battalion CEF with it being linked in perpetuation to 4 Engineer Support Regiment, wouldn't it be a smart idea to have a somewhat like-named unit formed under 5th Division/6 Canadian Combat Support Brigade as a reserve-only...

    Thanks. Needed this information for a short story I'm working on.

    Honours to a Captain boarding an RN Warship

    So the ship's name is never used, right?

    Honours to a Captain boarding an RN Warship

    Quick question: I have looked all over the Internet to find information about what happens when a ship's captain boards his own ship while at port. Naturally, a side party is there to pipe him aboard, but how is the captain verbally hailed when he boards the ship by the QMOW/BMOW. Is it by...

    Surface Warfare Officer badge

    Strange thought just came to me when I glanced over the latest edition of Your Navy Today, where there's a small note about some naval engineering officers graduating from HMS Sultan in the UK: If NWOs get their own "wings" now, why can't MSEOs and NCSEOs? Maybe mix the NWO badge with crossed...

    Defending Canadian Arctic Sovereignty

    Honestly, I hope so; that's got to be the most peaceful "war" happening in the world right now. Personally, I agree to the suggestion of some to split Hans Island in half, west half to Nunavut, east half to Greenland. There, problem solved!

    Influence Activities Task Force - Nudging.

    If it saves lives because of all the armchair nurses saying "I know better", it should be allowed.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Well, if you want to go for "battle" names, you can't do better than choose fifteen from the following: Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Batoche Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Paardeburg Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Gallipoli Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Arras Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Beaumont-Hamel...

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    Honestly, if people are SO stupid that they'd refuse a PROVEN vaccine to protect themselves from a deadly pandemic, the sooner they're out of the CF the better. Never mind the whole "refuse a superior officer's direct order" thing, we don't NEED that level of STUPIDITY in the military!

    British army pulling out of Suffield

    Sad for Suffield, but I can understand why the British are moving to clear out of the area if they wish to reorientate to a more "global" posture; after all, our corner of the world is rather quiet in comparison to the Middle East and eastern Europe. Still, it would be good for 1 CMBG to spread...

    Dutch ships and designs and the possibilities for Canada

    Much that I admire all the work that the Dutch do when it comes to shipbuilding, I have to admit they're NOT so original when it comes to NAMING said ships. Honestly, recycling names again and again and again gets...well, BORING!

    Australian navy's hunt for new sub to replace Collins class

    Good for Australia. Now if only Canada could be so blessed, both with government will and foreign help.

    JUSTAS: the project to buy armed Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAVs

    If they're going to hook in head-mounted VR control tech to the UAV controls, I can seriously see this happening.

    The diff between RCAF & Army as sigint specialist

    Isn't that an Intelligence Operator or Communications Research Operator tasking?

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    Personally, so am I. I just wish that the government would do something about getting more shipyards involved so we could get hulls into the water faster; not just the Type 26s but the AOPS, the JSS and everything else.

    Seeking an excuse to spend Defence $$ on a Bombardier plane

    Could we get a hold of a flight of these aircraft? Would they be able to fit into the RCAF?

    New Accommodations Facility at CFB Borden

    That's good. When I went to CFSAL in the late 1980s, there were new temp residence blocks close to the school building and that area's pretty crowded as is.
