Donald:

 

Un peu comme toi, j'ai passé 8 ans et quelques mois dans la 'régulière' comme 'COMMRSCH' (291er). Voici une photo de moi au printemps '83 à l'entrée du 'Ham Shack' de la Station des Forces Canadiennes d'Alert, NWT.

 

Pour ton site!

 

Chow,

I just found the above photo that Ronald sent me for the website almost 6 years ago. I received it around the time I was retiring so I guess it fell through the cracks, Ronald was a 291er in the Regular Forces, just like some of the other DOC/IC Alumni such as Art Solomon and Glen Ritchie. The main job of a Comm Research 291 was to "monitor Russian radio traffic and intelligence gathering" from places such as Alert, Inuvik and Bermuda. I am guessing that Bermuda was a good posting after spending some time in Alert. They were very good at copying Russian morse code.

 

As for me, I was a 251er also known as a Radioman Sea 251 (a.k.a. Radio Sparker). Our main job was to work as Radio Operators and Radio Technicians at naval coast stations and onboard ships and submarines. Before the unification of the Forces in 1969, in the old Navy, my trade was called Radioman and Ronald's trade was called Radioman Special.
