xx Licensing Violations -

April 01, 2018, 07:39:06 by Mike Bobbitt

Last week I received word that there are crown copyrights on and is not affected due to the addition of the hyphen. Unfortunately starting in April we are legally unable to use the other sites and their proprietary colour schemes, so moving forward we will be stuck with the Air-Force style.

I apologize and will do all I can to fight this, but as the papers have been filed, for now we must comply.

xx HMCS BONAVENTURE Memorial Anchor to be restored

March 12, 2018, 18:09:41 by jollyjacktar
The memorial to all RCN and RCAF personnel lost during peacetime is located at Point Pleasant Park, Halifax.  It has, as part of it, the anchor and cable from HMCS BONAVENTURE, Canada's last aircraft carrier.

Thanks to the efforts of a HMCS KOOTENAY survivor, AB Bell (Ret) the memorial will be repaired and ready by the end of March.  BZ to Dinger Bell  :salute:

xx Presently Army, being posted to a ship

February 20, 2018, 17:57:47 by IanLaw
I apologize if this question has already been answered. I am not the most computer proficient. Also, I am a longtime lurker but this is my first post as I am generally a private person who does not like sharing personal details.

Here is my background. I was sworn into the CAF about ten years ago. I have been Army my entire career and enjoyed various postings in my trade.

Because of some recent and unexpected retirements the Career Manager asked me to take a posting with the Navy come this APS that will eventually include going to sea. Other than a couple short-term taskings with the Air Force my entire career has been Army. What can I expect as life-long soldier being posted to fleet?

I know this question is open-ended but I don't feel I know enough right now to even know what questions I should be asking. So I appreciate any feedback and advice. Thank-you.

xx Navy Strategic Plan 2017-2022

December 16, 2017, 22:00:09 by gwp

The RCN Strategic Plan 2017-2022 represents a continued  focus  to  evolve  as  the  RCN  moves  forward  in its second century of existence. Change is critical to the  future  success  of  any  organization – stagnancy or traditionalism has simply never been the bulwark of the RCN.

Navyca-Ico CSEO Related Inquiry: knowledge from university

November 20, 2017, 17:22:58 by Epelix
Good day,

I'm currently under ROTP and in my third year as a Computer Engineering student. My trade is MSEO, but I have submitted a VOT application to CSEO.
As I have minimal to no experience or knowledge compared to students at RMC, I had a few questions to ask on the forum.

1) Is computer or electrical engineering knowledge taught in university ever used on the job?

2) I have to make a choice in fourth year between the software and hardware specialization. Which would be more suitable and applicable for the trade CSEO?

I'm not sure which section of the forums this should go under so if this section is inappropriate for type of post, please feel free to move it elsewhere.

Thank you,

xx Of Ships and Politics

November 19, 2017, 14:44:56 by Chris Pook
This video on the development of the Frigate addresses a bunch of topics of current interest:

What the Americans lost when they declared independence.
The value of a navy.
The value of a forward presence.
The problems of North Africa.
The value of appropriately designed ships (neither too big nor too small)

Heavy emphasis on the Jonathans - but I suppose that is to be expected.  ;)
