More Legion Controversy!

wingsparachuteimagesI received this info from a person that I regard as a very reliable source. However. I have not yet seen this change of legion regulations in actual print.  So for the moment I`m merely suggesting it could be possible considering how Dominion Command has been operating lately. I have been informed it is no longer permissible to wear any of the specialist badges I have included in this blog, (these are only three of many)  while wearing the Legion uniform.    If this info is correct you can be sure I will no longer wear the legion uniform. I earned the right to wear my submarine Dolphins and the legion will not dictate whether I can and cannot wear them.   This is the same Royal Canadian Legion that now offers medals for purchase that can be worn by any legion member in uniform.150 medal

This is the photo of latest fancy medal on the right,  it can be purchased for $25.00. Any legion member can wear this with his/her legion uniform, you do not need to be a veteran,it is available to any associate member. Of course it must be worn on the right breast. But don’t you dare let me see a widow wearing her late husbands war medals on her right breast. That’s against the law don’t you know!!!!

God Bless and keep reading.

    Hi Ben,
    Give a person LITTLE Authority and it will go right to their heads and they will impose all kinds of ridiculous terms to whatever they are in charge of. We have both seen first hand occurrences of this in our service lives and I speak with conviction about it. One of my reasons for not wearing Legion Uniform any more is one of them. HRH QUEEN ELIZABETH II authorizes the wearing of specialist branch insignia and the Royal Canadian Legion Command figure they can override her, give me a break. Must have been a bureaucrat that thought of this one and his minions went along to be politically correct so they could follow in his footsteps. Let them win the RAT Race, at the end of it all they will still be rats.

    Rats is a very suitable title for these guys, especially as the legion is a sinking ship
