    The helmet was part of the DICE initiative, DICE stands for Dismounted Infantry Capability Enhancement. It was never designed for the whole army, it is just for the 3 x light battalions as well as any attachments they have (FOO party, Engineers...). They are using lessons learned from the DICE...

    The Mess

    I think this is the issue. I work on the Gatineau side and live in Orleans and at the end of the day don't want to be driving downtown during rush hour.

    Updated Army Service Dress project

    I would be happier if we could handle Honours and Awards in a timely manner, the fact that for the majority of pers the awarding of their CD and clasps is usually a year or later is not very good.

    CAF Occupational Standard/MMTP

    Not an answer to your question, but just be aware that MMTP is very competitive and hard to do, there is no guarantee that you will be successful so picking a trade that will be the easiest to get into MMTP might not be the wisest choice. You want to pick a trade that if you don't get selected...

    CBC: "An 'embarrassing' gear shortage has Canadian troops in Latvia buying their own helmets"

    I have never heard of any soldier buying their own helmet and wearing it. The headline says equipment shortage but the article does not mention anywhere that there is a shortage of helmets. The picture looks like one of the trial helmets that DLR purchased and gave to 3 PPCLI to test before they...
