Well the old adage about buying an old car does not seem to be appropriate for the purchased of Used Fighters from the other side of the world.

The well used Aussie F-16s has been pushed back till 2019 at the earliest? Murray Brewster has an excellent column on this issue.

Meanwhile the Phillipines have cancelled their order for Canadian built attack Helicopters?

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/helicoptes-duterte-cut-deal-1.4527920

I do realise that I am getting older and there are many things I do not understand. One being WHY if we can produce helicopters? did it take so long to replace our helicopters. Also in the interests  of employment WHY not have Bombardier produce a Canadian Fighter Jet? If anyone has an answer please be kind enough to let me know.

PERHAPS Trudeau should check KIJIJI for home purchases:  (L O L )

On the good side of the news Canada’s Olympians have now taken a GOLD Medal in S Korea.
Gabrielle Daleman’s performance guaranteed Canada a gold medal in the team event at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, before Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir even hit the ice.  Well done all Canadian Olympians.

It was nice to read of two Canadian brothers, supporting one another in their chosen careers. One in the RCN and the other an Olympic Athlete. Bravo Zulu to the Dehaitre brothers.

Brothers Rene and Vincent De Haître represent Canada in their own unique ways, yet they also offer strong support to each other as they pursue their individual goals, even if they are a world apart.
Vincent, a world class long track speed skater, will compete in the PyeongChang Olympic Gamesthis month in both the 1,500 and 1,000-metre races on February 13 and 23 respectively, and Rene hopes to graduate from the Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School in St. Jean, Que, on February 22.

A good Canadian Story: https://ml-fd.caf-fac.ca/en/2018/01/9509

Be safe folks and please support our Military, our Veterans and their families.

Red Friday from Bonnie Scotland

Posted by on Feb 8, 2018 in The Invisible Army | 0 comments

Both the Orange man and boy Prime Minister Trudeau have Scots roots. Trump a wee bit closer as his Mother was a true Scot where as Justin owes his Scots Heritage  to Grandfather James Sinclair (on his Mother’s side) John Sinclair immigrated to Canada in 1911. He was Born in Banff which is just a wee bit North of my location. 45 Miles or so.

He too was a Liberal politician Minister of Fisheries 1952-1957, served in WW” as an RCAF officer in Malta, Sicily,and North Africa.

With a pedigree like that it is a wonder that Trump and Trudeau make a hash of our English Language.

PM Trudeau made it to BB Radio Scotland today. The talk show discussed his rude interruption of a lady at his town hall meeting in Edmonton. By telling her that mankind is not a word it is PEOPLE KIND???? Where does he get these words from his pal Donald.

I for one wonder HOW MUCH he will give this traitor to Canada? Yet has no funding for Veterans nor the aged.

Red Friday day after Ground Hog Day 2018

Posted by on Feb 2, 2018 in The Invisible Army | 0 comments

Red Fridays in 2018 let’s see more RED for our Brave Troops 

Greetings everyone.

Well hopefully my computer problems are over for a while. The worst thing that happened yesterday was that it took me over 30 minutes to thread a needle?  My housewife (Army Issue 1960 is still with me)

Never the less I am back and  sadly once again I am po’d at the Liberal Government. To change our National Anthem to satisfy but a few is a tragedy. I wonder if I can start a class action suit amongst Veterans who obtained Canadian Citizenship by Choice and Swore our oath to Queen Country and the national Anthem?

It seems that  the orange man wasted  30 million on a missile defense exercise and it Failed. Hhhhmmmm I wonder how many Vets could be housed and looked after with that 30 Mil?

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/02/01/sm_3_block_iia_anti_missile_fail/

Meanwhile in Ottawa  our wounded Veterans have been assigned to the Supreme Court, this should have been resolved by now? Are the Liberals For the life of me I CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY ! ! !  this fool was allowed to sell 20,000 Flame throwers. I guess we will wait now for the news of a Flame Thrower attack, Damn were automatic weapon supplies a lesson to the US Government?

http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/elon-musk-flame-thrower-boring-company-1.4513935

Obviously the orange president  must approve for his Red Neck pals.

On a lighter note, this article with Colourized Photos of WW2 is rather good  Historically.

Until next Blog stay safe take care and look after our Veterans their families and all of our Serving Soldiers be they Land Sea or air.
