Maybe this part of 265 covers that part?

Ch 3, Sect 3 - Flying and Specialist Skill Badges, Foreign Flying and Specialist Skill Badges

15.  Personnel who have been presented equivalent badges of allied countries as a result of qualifications obtained on a course prescribed by the CAF, and those who have been presented honorary qualification badges while attached to, or serving with the armed forces of an allied country, may wear the appropriate metal or cloth badge, on the right breast of the service dress and mess dress jacket only while on duty in the specific allied country, when subsequently working with the armed forces of the country or when attending a formal function sponsored by the country concerned.

Thanks I'm well aware of the regs, which is why I stated he was wearing one set on the wrong side, ie the left pocket as I guess he just had to many foreign wings :-/  I would also question that a NATO conference is a "formal function" sponsored by "the country concerned", but I guess as CDS he has the option to interpret the regs, since they are issued on his authority :-/

Cheers

Reminds me of a General that liked wearing lots of rings

I'd be interested to see a picture of that, but I guess its no different than the CDS wearing foreign wings on the wrong side of his tunic at a NATO conference :-/

Ships & Vessels / Re: Replacing the Subs

I firmly believe that we should be looking to the replacement of our Victoria class submarines.  They are Canada's only true Strategic Military Asset.  What should we get to replace them?   Honestly, we should buy from someone else's production line, 4-6 subs, whatever we can legitimately afford so that we can operate at least one on each coast, with the others in a supportable training/maintenance cycle.

I would go with the SAAB A26. Seems to be one of the most modern SSKs out there. And the Swedes have already ordered two. Also, the A26 comes in three variants: a coastal versions; a mid-range; and, a long range ocean version.

As an aside, the argument about neatly trimmed vs daily shaving with a beard makes no sense to me.

Nothing new about the Subject of this discussion. At least as far back as when I joined the PRes in 1970. No doubt, long before that.

This is new ( to me at least ),

Agreed we all wear our foreign jump wings on our mess kit despite regulations I would argue the difference though is I have never seen GOFO/SA CWO wearing a commemorative medal on their mess kit wear as there are many examples of them wearing foreign wings that we can all point to as "the example"

I have seen at least one GOFO wearing one.
