There's Always A Bloody Ghost: BrotherJew: doglover: All of Canada's soldier is on high alert.

My uncle was in the Army back in the 60s stationed in Alaska.  Someone made a wisecrack about the Canadian Army, and he spent about a half hour talking about how he'd crossed paths with some guys from their army, and basically said that they were a tough and nasty bunch that he wouldn't have dared fark around with.

I thought it was an interesting story.  Of course, I heard it 20 years ago and that uncle is dead now, so my memory of the complete story was drank away a long time ago.

Where do you think the name Stormtroopers comes from? The term "storm trooper" was first used by the Germans in the First World War to describe the Canadian troops that they had to fight against. Canadian troops were most feared by the Germans during the First World War, and the German army always prepared for the worst when an attack was spearheaded by the Canadian army. It took the Canadian troops, including my grandfather, to finally take Vimy Ridge in WWI: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/history/first-world-war/roa d -to-vimy-ridge/vimy4




What unit was he in? I served in a unit that made up part of 20th Bn, C.E.F. that took part in talking the Ridge.

If you ever get the opportunity to visit Vimy, do it. It's a very moving place.

moto-geek: inglixthemad: doglover: All of Canada's soldier is on high alert.

Canada has the Mounties, they don't need a regular army.

Right, they'll just Tazer the enemy to death in an airport.


Pfft. Don't compare city Mounties to backwoods Mounties. That's like comparing the US Marines to Joe's Freedom Militia of Hoveround AR-15 wielders.

Heck, even if the Mounties are all killed, unlikely, there's a lots of Finns in the Canadian provinces. Finns don't give up easily, and almost every one (including the ladies) I met could shoot. Imagine moving through a country filled with people like this. I mean, they even tried using artillery to kill the farker.

Never fark with people who live in cold places all their lives is a rule to live by.

I did visit Vimy when I went to Paris in 2008. They employ Canadian students at the visitor's centre, and they give you an excellent tour of the tunnels and trenches. Best part, the girl at the visitor's centre took the time to check on a map of the battlefield, where my grandfather would have been, as part of the 48th Highlanders. Very cool. The day we were there, in late October, the monument was almost completely free of tourists, and my sister and I got some excellent photos. It's a truly breathtaking place.

Mr. Oizo: Ghastly: [25.media.tumblr.com image 500x299]

From my cold dead hands, comrades.

How many double-doubles did you have to consume to get that many roll-up-the-rim winners?  Geeze, I win a coffee about once every 10 cups.


Large black for me. My boyfriend drinks double doubles though. So you're looking at the accumulated wins of the two of us.

Theburner: Listen.. Mess with our military all you want. BUT NEVER MESS WITH TIMMY HORTONS.

Most Yanks probably don't know that Tim Hortons combines two of Canada's greatest loves.

Hockey and Coffee/ Donuts.

Google Fu, the more you know.


Heck, most of us Americans don't know that the comic strip "For Better or For Worse" is done by a Canadian and is set in Canada.

/Godspeed, Farley.

Tell that to my uncle... oh wait... he DIED during WWII.

Dumbass....go Fark a tree.

Does anyone know 'Lighten Up, Francis'

François in French Canadian?

Barfmaker: doglover: All of Canada's soldier is on high alert.

After a couple of thousand dead and injured helping an ally, that type of comment wears a bit thin up here.


ignore him. He has no sense of history or the first special service force.

as for the Russians, are you sending home the hockey players as well?

And can we deport bieber? he is stating to annoy us down here.

I enjoyed my visit as well, which was in May 2002. Europe was essentially tourist-free as a result of the Sep. 11 travel hangover.

My unit was also Toronto-based, and we used to have some cracking parties with the 48th.

You were at Vimy Ridge? How old are you?
 
2014-03-07 03:02:12 PM
Ha!  The wording is confusing..  I served in the 1990's.  The unit was formed in 1755 (oldest in NA).

That said, I am 120 years old.
