A quick look at the Service Publications website will reveal a great book on Canadian Sniping equipment entitled "Without Warning".

Ted, I've got the book and it's quite extensive with the amount of research has gone into it and worth every penny! If you need a copy I can get one for you. (The pictures alone are worth it!!)

The close up- on Rifles both bolt action/semi-auto and bino's (Binoculars) are in here as well and I would "highly reccomend" it for your library for refence material.

I suspect they're raised the recruiting age since then, if that is the case...Furlotte will tell you there is no shame in wearing rubber pants at that age either. Right, Alice?

Alex, my father joined up in 1964 (1 Battalion RCR)in London,Ontario. The in 1965 he was transfered to Soest,Germany (Fort York)from then till late 1969! He always told me with pride that it was the best times of his life and had many good buddies over there and the "Royals" were true blue- Ohhh maybe he meant Labatts Blue "lol"

BTW: I was born in Soest,Germany.
