49 years ago....The Regiment was equipped with 105mm C1 howitzers. We deployed to the field in woollen Battle Dress (with puttees!! - ask an old-timer what a puttee is!) The gun tractor was 2 1/2 Ton SMP (Deuce and a half) manufactured in 1952. The Command Post was a 3/4 Ton SMP (Three Quad) with a 6 foot folding table. Those were the good old days?
2004 - Additional photos from an exercise in Yakima - Are they from Cougar Salvo? Or another exercise?
I've added hazardous skill badges to the list of Honours and Awards. Of course the only information I have is a vast collection of fuzzy photographs! Did you qualify for jump wings? Canadian or foreign? Other hazardous badges? Take a look at the sparse list that I have and let me know if I have not included your achievement. I would also be very interested in the year in which you received the qualification and your rank at that time.
