Sikh Troops in Italy

This picture was taken in 1943, during the Sicilian campaign. Its from a book called The 20th Century: A Chronicle in Pictures. I’ve had this book since I was in middle school. I love this picture; I think its one of the reasons I joined the army.



This old fella was with, (amoung other things), the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires.

Bed Time on the Bus

GSD, (a.k.a. Mr. No Web Presence), catching up on his beauty sleep on the way to Pet.

This was at our ‘smoker’ in Petawawa during area concentration in the summer of 05. We ate, relaxed, than working into the late night. Not the best way to end off a fun exercise.

Next Generation

A picture of my nephew and I on Halloween many years ago. I’d like to draw your attention to a few things:

a) the old style helmet I wore when I first joined
b) the shinny plastic cover on my moms couch, (kinda hard to make out)
c) the not yet full grown beard on my youthful face
d) my nerdy glasses
e) the eye of the tiger my nephew was showing off

I love Halloween.
