The RCR Catechism 2017

Subject: Change in wearing of miniatures

There was a relatively recent change that occurred in 2013, though it took a while to be promulgated. Perhaps you had already learned this ... I have only recently.

The Chancellery updated their booklet on how to wear your gongs. Prior to this miniatures were limited to evening dress and Mess Dress. Now they are worn with business suit or blazer and flannels to events commencing after sundown.

Caveat:

Full-size insignia are worn for all occasions before sundown and sometimes in the evening for certain occasions: Parades and other military ceremonies: change of command, consecration of colours, graduations, military funerals, etc. Remembrance Day and any other commemorative ceremonies
The Speech from the Throne
State funerals
New Year’s Levee

Retired Members Update

From John Cook

Hi All;
I spoke with Bruce Jeffrey about his latest Chemo Test Results, yesterday.
The latest Test Results:
Despite being subjected to the most heavy dosage of Chemo the major Tumor has grown 1 centimeter.
Chemo is not truly slowing or stopping the growth of the Tumor.
There will be no more Chemo treatments.
Bruce will be tested to see if he is a good candidate for a new type of Stem Cell treatment at Mount Sinai Hospital, in Toronto.

I will endeavour to keep you all updated on Bruce's next medical steps as well as Dave Bell's pending heart surgery, John Fullick's progress after his surgery, Sam Carr's & Bill Russel's health, as well as everyone else's and their Families ....ETC ETC.

All of you please stay well .....and stay cool.
Pro Patria;
John
