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
Investitures (presentation of honours ceremonies)

65th Anniversary Reunion

Although I'm not involved this time around, plans have begun, under the tutelage of Gary Willaert, for a 65th anniversary reunion next year. I can only guess it will be in the same time-frame as the last one, that is early October. Since the WOs' & Sgts' Mess is no longer available the venue remains cloudy. The London Branch of the Assn has been holding their functions at the Victory Legion (Dundas and Florence area). More to follow when there's more to follow.
