I apologise to anyone who reads my blogs…I have been absent for a while since the last one. I would love to say I had been extremely busy. BUT can only say I was suffering from what is called Writers Block. So here I now add my latest Blog. Hope it stirs something in you as readers.

2016 was a heavy year of Complaint(s) against the Royal Canadian Legion. The actions of certain branches before, during and after Remembrance day left many a jaw agape.

The actions of Dominion Command and their lack of interest in Veteran’s families wearing a loved ones medals on Remembrance day is … put it bluntly a DISRESPECTFUL  way to pay honour to a Veteran  on Remembrance day.

The article in Esprit de corps this issue says a lot about the mafia of Dominion Command. Far more interested in their salaries and tinpot medals and decorations for their Right Breast.

Even past Dominion Command President (who has never served a day in Uniform)  Tom Eagles had the decency NOT  to wear his chestful of Cracker Jack medals, while attending the Royal British Legion and Royal Scottish Legion’s conference. Why?  was he ashamed to wear his collection of tinsel with actual Veterans in the room ?

Read the blog I agree with you whole heartily, I’m tired of seeing those civvy wearing  their cheap medals and running the legions. They have turned the legion into nothing but watering holes for civies.

Comment from F.Ben Rodgers ret’d Royal Navy, RCN Reserve.
These are the Legion members that tell me to allow a widow to wear her late husband’s medals on her right breast, dilutes the value of the medals.004 One might ask which of the two photos here dilute real medals. Grandfather with grand daughter wearing great grandfathers WW1 medals. Or  assoc member with approx ten pretend medals on his right breast.
