HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE ROYAL CANADIAN REGIMENT

As I am honoured to serve alongside a Major of the Royal Canadian Regiment, allow me to recognise their birthday today.

Here is a short history, up to the Balkans; and here they are up to Afghanistan.

Fellas, if I had any rum I’d happily hand it over for an Ortona Toast.

Happy birthday to you, and may next year see you all home, safe and sound, wreathed with the laurels of victory you have rightly won.
