Uniforms of The Canadian Forces

The Uniforms of the Canadian Forces are the official dress worn by members of Canada's military while on duty.

Prior to unification in 1968, the uniforms of the Canadian Army, Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) were similar to their counterparts in the forces of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth countries, save for national identifiers and some regimental accoutrements. With unification in 1968 all branches started wearing the new rifle green uniform. The present distinctive environmental uniforms in different colours for the army, navy and air force were introduced in the late 1980s and are generally similar to their pre-1968 counterparts.

    Silence is the general consecration of the universe. Silence is the invisible laying on of the Divine Pontiff’s hands upon the world. Silence is at once the most harmless and the most awful thing in all nature. It speaks of the Reserved Forces of Fate. Silence is the only Voice of our God.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    I place these numbed wrists to the pane
    watching white uniforms whisk over
    him in the tube-kept
    fear what they will do in experiment
    Michael S. Harper (b. 1938)
