Thanks very much

Yet another fascinating thought provoking find, makes an interesting comparison with the ongoing project to establish a synopsis of the Canadian 2nd Corps in the immediate Post War period which included a number of units originally recruited in Manitoba

Interesting find Hardrations, I recall that there was a few Mennonite communities in Belize, we offered our help where we could but they wanted nothing to do with the British Army!

Nowt to do with RN, but having got on to button sticks & things..................

Our greatcoats were hung from below a shelf on which small packs etc, were on show. For months I was lucky, I had plastic GS buttons on the coat. No one worried until a pre-Admin inspection by the CO was scheduled. "Get 'em changed !" they said . "........ By tomorrow !!!". It was after the evening meal when I was told. Panic, mad dash to BQMS Stores. " Buttons lad ?" said the storeman " Rules is you bring the old ones & I'll swap 'em. No old ones, no can do !". Hot foot back, plastic buttons hacked off with Jack knife, Rush to G 1098 again, storeman irritated at being disturbed out of office hours hardly looked up from reading his Hank Jansen. " You've a problem " he sneered " ........ I've not got any ". Problem indeed but an old sweat helped out. Old buttons were back on greatcoat quick time and held in place behind the material with spare boot laces. And next morning, on the high level inspection, no one took the slightest notice of the plastic GS buttons.
