National Post (Canada): "Silencing The Echos Of History"

Discussion in 'International' started by soleil, Dec 2, 2013.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Peter Newman writes:

    "The British government announced this month the closure of its historic naval base at Portsmouth, an island city on the south coast of the United Kingdom. In the 1980s, when I was an officer in the Royal Canadian Naval Reserves as well as a journalist, I was assigned by my commanding officer to visit Portsmouth, then the Royal Navy’s main base of operations, to consult and co-ordinate with our allies there."

  2. I hope he was more skilled at being a Naval officer (were the Canuks dressing like Southdown bus drivers in the '80s?) than he is at being a journalist.

    If Southdown bus drivers wear a fetching shade of green, then yes the Canucks may have been dressing like them. In 1968 when the services were unified, a single green uniform was introduced, but thankfully Distinctive Elemental Uniforms (aka DEU) were reintroduced starting around 1986.
