    Happy 117th to all who have worn the sapper badge, past and present. CHIMO, brother and sister and undecided beavers!
  2. NEOS overboots

    Anyone in Edmonton know if CANEX stocks NEOS? They look to be the bees knees for those wet days out in the grid, but I don't want to drive an hour and a half to the garrison just to be disappointed.
  3. Sgt ret Alfred I Keep

    Alfred Keep was killed in an MVA west of Calgary on Monday. A long serving Sapper and someone I've been proud to call my friend since 1980. The last bridge has been crossed, hold fast brother,  see you on the objective soon. Memorial at the Redcliff AB legion, 13 July 2018.
  4. old magnesium snowshoe bindings

    As the title says, I'm looking for a set of bindings for the old pattern snowshoes.  My old ones gave up the ghost. I bought some of the two part US style bindings, and they suck goat butt, to put it mildly.  Maybe my google fu is weak, but I couldn't get a line on any.
  5. Dear pers of 450 Sqn

    And all associated baggage train drivers and other detritus; when you see two men wearing reflective vests, one with a metal detector and the other with a shovel beside the road staring intently into a hole, the preferred COA is to SLOW THE FUCK DOWN, not put the hammer down and fly by them. ...
  6. Shawn Eades, five years already

    Five years ago, the engineers lost one of the good ones.  I still remember the feeling of a lead weight dropping into my stomach when I heard, seems like it was yesterday.  RIP brother beaver.
  7. political correctness run amok

    Just when you thought it couldn't get any stupider. http://www.cbc.ca/thisisthat/blog/2013/01/23/saying-bless-you-after-a-sneeze-deemed-offensive-by-feds/
  8. Iconic victory picture under fire

    It was only a matter of time, but I have to shake my head at the abject stupidity of this: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/10/09/kissing-sailor-sexual-assault_n_1950423.html
  9. Sapper Birthday

    Happy 108th Birthday to my beloved corps branch, and to all those Sappers, Pukka Sappers, Sapper Hasbeens, and Sapper Wannabes, a great big hairy CHIMO to you all!!
  10. Sick Android app

    :threat: RANT ON!  :threat:  Okay, let me preface this by freely admitting that I am a pitbull owner.  I am a responsible pitbull owner who never allows my dog off leash, not because I mistrust him, but because I mistrust the reactions of people to him.  Google has, via Android released a dog...
  11. Guy Fawkes night!

    Been stockpiling combustibles all week!  Happy Guy Fawkes night to those who care, and to those who don't, Happy Guy Fawkes night anyway!   "Remember, remember the fifth of November..."
  12. immunization book?

    I just realized (8 years after release, d'oh!) that I didn't get my immunization when I retired.  I now find myself wondering if I require Hep shots for my job, or if my military inoculations are still current.  Is there a booster required, or am I good to go?  If I just go and get it again, is...

    I have been a member of this forum for a couple or three years now, and there is one thing that gets up my nose faster than my pinkie finger;  potential recruits who believe that they are the most unique, precious gem in the world, and the CF should be begging them to join.  Whatever medical...
  14. Router options?

    I'm on my third D Link router now in as many years, and I'm becoming more than a little POd by it.  I live in a small town with a Radio Shack The Source store for electronics, and that's it.  All they seem to carry is this D Link crap.  Any other ideas for a decent router that won't break the bank?
  15. RIP Dick Belgrove

    Another sad piece of news via the Sapper Net: I have just received a call from Scotty Nicholson who telephoned to tell me that R.G. (Dick) Belgrove passed away in Chilliwack this morning (5 Sept.). Dick began his long military career as  a 6th Intake Spr/App. Dick had been suffering with cancer...

    Anyone have a LOCSTAT for John Williams, ex Welsh Guards, now PPCLI (3rd Bn, I think)?
  20. Full moon tonight?

    Is there a full moon out tonight?  I've been noticing a lot more sniping and snarly toned posts today, my own included.  Did someone spike the punch or something?
