CMEA
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.

Scout House honours important anniversaries
Waterloo Region Record
These are really important anniversaries! Early last month, the eyes of the free world focused on Normandy, and for us Canadians, on Juno Beach.
