xx Moving to Esquimalt?

Yesterday at 20:19:05 by Daishi
Hello all,

Just a quick few questions as all the threads Ive found are ancient. After basic for MARS Officer I've been told Ill have to move out to Esquimalt to do atleast 1 year of training, and possible be posted out there.

Now, I live in Toronto. Are their resources made available to you to MOVE out there? I am a single male and I'm just wondering how the process of actually moving out there goes. Are you provided with housing, or do you have to do all your own research and rent a place as close as you can to the base? What is the typical rent cost out there?

xx Put on Goon!!!

April 28, 2017, 22:38:33 by Jaydub
When did Goon become such a popular movie on ships?  Every time someone is trying to watch a movie, someone will invariably shout "This sucks!  Put on Goon!!!" People in my mess are starting to make copies of the Goon video file under different file names. You click another movie file and... Goon!

I've seen this on at least three different west coast ships. Is Goon the new Boondock Saints?  Do they do this on the East coast as well?  It's so ridiculous.

xx New style Ball Caps

April 05, 2017, 10:03:53 by Lumber
We've been told that the new style Ball Caps have been approved. I even spoke with a buddy wearing one a few weeks ago when I was in Esquimalt.

However, I cannot find anywhere that indicates where/who we are suppose to procure these new ball caps from, or anywhere I can get a picture or design from.

Does anyone have the info I'm looking for? DWAN and Google searches both came up empty.

xx The swarm navy (split from: The Defence Budget)

March 19, 2017, 16:32:29 by jollyjacktar
Chris,  the main difference between civilian sailing and Naval sailing is of course the possibility of combat.  Sure, if you're just pottering from Port to Port on your Maresk rounds, at a steady state of speed, who needs numbers?  You can get away with a small-ish crew and accomplish the company's business.  We're not in the business, business.  We're in the war business and whatever else our political masters say we are.  You're comparing apples to oranges.

I agree, the meat interfaces cost a great deal over the hardware.

On the small craft MTB thing.  I knew an man who involved in the battles of what was going to replace the gate vessels for the reserves back when. He said there were two camps, those who wanted gun boats and those who wanted sweepers. As it turned out the guns went down to defeat and we have the MCDVs.  I would have loved to see gun boats in the fleet, you bet.

March 17, 2017, 02:30:01 by sailoraye123
I heard today a rumour that a medal was in the works for ships leaving for either set sail to west or south or east ploy that aren't recognized by other current medals... has anybody heard anymore on this.. this is a great feat for young sailors who are gone 4-8 months a year a little recognition for hard work and sacrifice will being great pride...

Military Quote
The authority of the civil defense ... issued a warning to the civilian population not to pick up any of those pencils because they are booby traps, I am not talking about the American people and the British people, I am talking about those mercenaries. ... They have started throwing those pencils, but they are not pencils, they are booby traps to kill the children.

- The Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf said that coalition forces were throwing booby traps in the form of pens and pencils into Iraqi villages and townships.
