xx Major Site Upgrade

November 25, 2016, 15:42:39 by Mike Bobbitt
All,

Today I completed a major site upgrade. There are some outstanding issues that I am aware of, and likely a whole lot that I am not aware of. Please use this thread to report any issues.

The Wiki is not working at the moment, for example. :)

Thanks for your patience, we will be back to "normal" as soon as possible.


Cheers
Mike

xx Humour in Official Message Traffic

January 18, 2017, 15:10:13 by Lumber
I love that in the Navy, we get away with transmitting such elegant repartee. Enjoy.

Part 1: From HMCS REGINA (REG) to AIG 1704 and 1705
SUBJ: HMCS REGINA WARDROOM BISON UNVEILING - 20 JANUARY 2017

1. FOR AS LONG AS THERE HAS BEEN MILITARY FORCES MASCOTS HAVE BEEN
USED TO INCREASE MORALE AND ENCOURAGE THE WARRIOR SPIRIT. REG
CARRIES THE NAME OF A PROUD PRAIRIE CITY AND WEARS THE SYMBOL OF A
RCMP TROOPER WITH PRIDE. SADLY THE RCMP WAS UNABLE TO PROVIDE AN
ACTUAL TROOPER FOR PERMANENT DISPLAY SO REG HAS BEEN SEARCHING FOR A
SYMBOL OF STRENGTH, FEROCITY AND FEARLESSNESS TO SYMBOLIZE THE
FIGHTING SPIRIT OF THE SHIP
2. AS REG S HISTORICAL OFFICER SELFLESSLY TOILED TO FIND A SUITABLE
ANIMAL, THE MAJESTIC BISON BECAME A MORE AND MORE APPROPRIATE
CHOICE. REG HAS LONG ENJOYED A CONNECTION WITH THE RCMP, WHICH HAS
LONG HELD THE BISON AS ITS MASCOT AND IT FORMS THE CENTRAL DEVICE OF
THE FORCE S BADGE
3. REGINA, ONCE THE CAPITAL OF THE ENTIRE NORTHWEST TERRITORIES AND
THE DISTRICT HEADQUARTERS OF ASSINIBOIA AND NOW PROVINCIAL CAPITAL,
WAS FIRST NAMED OSKANA KA-ASASTEKI (ROUGHLY TRANSLATED TO PILE OF
BONES) BY THE CREE IN REFERENCE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF BISON BONES
PILED IN THE CITY. ITS COAT OF ARMS FEATURES A BISON AS ITS PRIMARY
SYMBOL AND THE ANIMALS CONTINUE TO BE RAISED IN THE AREA TODAY
4. FOR THESE REASONS REG HAS DECIDED TO TAKE BACK THE BISON. THE
UNIFYING POWER OF THIS GREAT CANADIAN ANIMAL IS SO STRONG THAT THE
REG WDRM HAS PURCHASED A FULL SIZED BISON HEAD TO MOUNT IN THE MESS.
WHILE SOME MAY CRITICIZE THE CHOICE OF REG S MASCOT (WIN) SIMPLY DUE
TO THE FACT THAT OUR SHIP S CREST DOES NOT FEATURE THE ANIMAL THE
SHIP S COMPANY OF REG COUNTERS THAT A BEAST AS FIERCE AND MIGHTY AS
THE GREAT CANADIAN BISON CAN CERTAINLY SUPPORT MORE THAN ONE SHIP.
TIME WILL TELL WHO IS TRULY WORTHY OF THE BISON
5. IN ORDER TO OFFICIALLY ADOPT THE BEAST AS REG S NEW MASCOT A
NAMING CEREMONY WILL TAKE PLACE AT 1230 ON 20 JAN 17. ALL FORMER XOS
HODS AND DIE-HARD WDRM MEMBERS ARE INVITED TO WITNESS THIS HISTORIC
EVENT AND ENJOY SOME LIGHT REFRESHMENT IN HONOUR OF THE NEW MASCOT
6. RSVP TO XXXXXXXX
7. HASHTAG TAKEBACKTHEBISON
8. FLOREAT REGINA

xx 50's to current Navy Trades and uniforms

November 02, 2016, 21:45:38 by jfc
Hi to all,
I am trying to complete my webpage dedicated to the Royal Canadian Navy.  I need a list of all uniforms worn from the 50 to current.  IE No. 1 Ceremonial Dress, No. 11 white, No. ?? Naval Combat dress. Pictures of the uniforms would greatly help with full name, No. ?? and dates worn.  Same for trade badges.  I have the red trade badges worn on No.3 Work dress from the 50's, I have blue trade badges on white without a rim, blue/black on white with a rim.  Yellow trade badges on white, gold on green (looks like CF color for DEU, but I heard that the Canadian Navy didn't wear trade badges on uniforms), etc etc.
Have a look at my webpage http://jfchalifoux.com
