Restoration of Canadian Army Colours
« on: April 01, 2015, 05:06:21 »
When the Government of Canada announced that it was reinstating the historical name of the Canadian Army, historical ranks, and historical "Royal" titles for many units it restored an important part of the Canadian Army’s heritage.

Today, Army.ca is happy to be a part of this heritage, by tweaking it's long held "olive green" colours to match the more historical "antediluvian green" in use by the Canadian Army up to 1967.

The restoration of these features is a significant step in the restoration of the Canadian Army’s traditions. Symbols and traditions establish links to soldiers’ heritage, and represent meaningful reminders of military history.

There's a colour change? The forum looks the same to me. ???

The timing of this very fitting announcement could not be better.

Love the new colour scheme.

Looks excellent! Makes it a bit easier to read too! (at least for me!)
