10. Rules for wearing RCE rank insignia
CMEA
May 2, 2014: Colonel RNH Dickson, the Director RCE, has provided the rules for the wearing of traditional ranks. On order, all Canadian Army officers across the CAF will simultaneously begin wearing the restored rank badges in the pattern of the pre-1968 Canadian Army on all orders of dress. The intent is for this to take place on Monday, August 4, 2014 — the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI — if the distribution is complete. There will be NO changes to the pattern of NCM rank insignia. The WO crown rank on the CADPAT will be larger and all CADPAT slip-ons are available in high visibility thread as stocks of low visibility run out. Details are attached including the wearing of Division patches and metal shoulder titles.

9. A great Engineer gavel
CMEA
July 25, 2014: This Engineer gavel was MWO Bob Byers' (Ret'd) idea. When Major Ron Sharp (Ret'd) was relinquishing command of 33 Field Engineer Squadron, he asked the SSM Bob Byers, what he thought would be an appropriate departing gift to the Squadron. Bob suggested combining a couple of Engineer symbols, a thumper and a 1/6th model Bailey bridge panel, to make an Engineer gavel. Bob had the thumper made out of steel pipe and then had the handles welded on.

7. Message from the Chief of the Defence Staff
Government of Canada
Oct. 24, 2014: By now many of you will be aware of the incident in which Corporal Nathan Cirillo was shot, and later died of his wounds. Corporal Cirillo fell while standing guard over Canada's National War Memorial. This cowardly attack on our member, and on our institution — will not shake our resolve. It will in fact strengthen it. We will take appropriate precautionary measures as we move forward to reduce unnecessary risks, and we will continue our efforts to defend Canadians and Canadian interests, both at home and abroad, with steadfast resolve. We will not be deterred.
