Legion Policy Contradictory

Trying to be patient while awaiting the legions answer to my question asked a week ago? Remember the letter I sent to the Editor (below) re-Mrs Ferris, she received a very prompt reply! However, it seems I’m going to have to wait a while longer for my question to be answered, if ever??? The letter appeared in the Guardian on Tues 12th July 2016. Anyway, as we await the answer, I thought I’d add a wee bit of Irish humour at the end of my blog.


A few years ago a Charlottetown Lady, Mrs Madrien Ferris, asked a question of the Royal Canadian Legion through a letter to the editor. Was she permitted to wear her late husbands medals on her right breast while attending a Remembrance Day Service. The Legion promptly told her no, it was against the law under section 419 of the criminal code. Now, I’d like to ask another question of the Legion. Please explain to me the following. While it is against the law for a widow to wear her late husbands medals, medals actually earned in the service of his country. It is quite legal for any legion member, no requirement to be a veteran, to purchase legion medals for the lowly sum of $25 each.

Why are we waiting is a song that comes to mind!!


An attractive blonde from Cork, Ireland, arrived at the casino.

She seemed a little intoxicated and bet twenty thousand dollars in a single roll of the dice.

She said, “I hope you don’t mind, but I feel much luckier when I’m completely nude.”

…With that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and with an Irish brogue yelled, “Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!”As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and squealed. “Yes! Yes! I won, I won!” She hugged each of the dealers, picked up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departed.The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded.Finally, one of them asked, “What did she roll?”

The other answered, “I don’t know – I thought you were watching.”


Not all Irish are drunks, not all blondes are dumb, …

But all men … Are men !

God Bless and keep reading. Oh and maybe have your wife give this a go!!!!!
