Air-Forceca-Ico Question for Mods and / or those who run the board.

September 26, 2014, 11:53:52 by shadreamer

I did a bit of research for a novel here a while back and to show my appreciation, I would like to offer complementary copies to the board and / or it's members for assisting me.  The novel came out in July and is doing very well.

Before I posted anything specific, I just wanted to see how you wanted to handle this (or not). If you don't want me doing this, I'll certainly respect your wishes.

I can send copies to the board mods or owner to hand out, or you can run a draw and I can mail paperbacks (or email ebooks) direct to the winners. Alternately, I can offer them to the people who responded to my thread.

To be clear, I'm not looking for any sort of endorsement or advertising. These will be gifts, pure and simple. If paperback, I can offer up to six copies. For ebooks, we can discuss.

Feel free to send me an email to my addy if you prefer.

Regardless of the decision, thank you for providing this forum.  :)

xx HMCS Toronto deals with minor on board fire on Christmas Day

December 28, 2014, 09:51:23 by Chief Stoker

ht tp://

No one was injured during a minor Christmas Day fire on board HMCS Toronto.

National Defence Department spokeswoman Ashley Lemire said the ship’s rapid response team quickly put out the fire on Thursday after it started in the after auxiliary machinery room.

“All the members of the ship’s company who were exposed to smoke have been checked out by the medical professionals on board and have been verified as medically fit to return to full duties,” she said on Saturday night.

“All of these individuals have also spoken with their families.”

The ship has returned to duty in the Mediterranean Sea and Lemire said there would be an investigation into the cause of the fire.

HMCS Toronto was deployed in July as part of Operation Reassurance, the response to Russia’s aggressive actions against Ukraine. The ship replaced HMCS Regina.

It’s not been an uneventful trip for the Halifax-based frigate.

Six crew members helped fight a fire and evacuate a building in November while on shore leave in Antalya, Turkey. Sailors were on the port visit following a Turkish-led anti-submarine warfare exercise as part of NATO activities related to the situation in Ukraine.

The ship was first deployed to the Mediterranean Sea, leaving Halifax on July 24. HMCS and its 250-person crew is tasked with boarding, finding, reporting and tracking vessels suspected of terrorist-related activities in the Mediterranean Sea, according to the National Defence Department.

In September the ship operated in the Black Sea where it took part in several exercises with ships from NATO partner nations. It also grabbed headlines when two Russian fighter jets and a surveillance plane buzzed the ship within 600 metres, moves Canadian Defence Minister Rob Nicholson at the time said were “unnecessarily provocative” and “likely to increase tensions further.”

A defence analyst downplayed the exchange between the jets and the ship, saying it was relatively standard practice.

It’s expected HMCS Fredericton will be deployed in the coming weeks to replace HMCS Toronto.

xx OP Caribbe Time in Box

November 30, 2014, 01:01:09 by misratah500
Does anyone know how long it takes for NDHQ update the time in the box for the OSM Exp for OP Caribbe? Just finished down there in October and still haven't seen the list updated. Apparently I can't get the medal ordered until that list is updated and my days become "official" even though they are in my MPRR and I have the CFTPO for it.
