Just to pick flyshit from pepper, but the phonetic alphabet then was "Able" for "A" Company. Which was an improvement over the Brit alphabet that Canadians used at the start of the war, which had them as "Ack" Company.This campaign will follow the 1st Company (Alpha Coy) of the Royal Canadian Regiment – also known as ‘the RCR’ or ‘the Royals’ – (as part of the 1st Canadian Infantry Brigade) in its campaign from Sicily to Ortona, Italy as they push back the German forces on the eastern side of ‘the boot’. It will consist of 14 weekly missions.
<shrug>Also, the RCR types seem to get bent out of shape if you don't capitalize The, because they are The Royal Canadian Regiment.
His regular column in Legion Magazine was brilliant as well.Strome was awesome. I had the pleasure of being his "aide" twice when he visited 2RCR and while he was serving as Honorary Colonel. I own a couple of his books (ie "Bravely Into Battle") and I proudly have his signature on one of them. I loved his no nonsense approach and his disdain for the typical polished officer of the time
