Not a fan of the current dress blues,, BUT

There are small niche venues where "blues" are historically correct.

The 1st Cavalry Division Horse Cavalry Detachment wares a traditional two tone blue with yellow braces.

The ANC Honor Guard uses the less traditional but current blues.

The 1st Cav will not change, and I don't think the ANC Cav should..

Seems like a bandaid over the damage done the last 8 years

I have no issue with this uniform I have an issue that with all of our current issues that need fixed this falls to the bottom on the priorities

Once again the troops.come first they.are really being considerate of the cost....the tactic of introducing more stressors to take our focus away from the real issues is nothing new.

The top soldiers of Canada’s special forces have been issued new uniforms that harken back to those worn by the famed Devil’s Brigade of the Second World War.

The new duds, officially called the Distinctive Environmental Uniform or DEU, are part of a wider effort to assign unique dress to special forces and visibly identify the command’s “distinct nature” within the military, Maj. Alex Cadieux, a spokesman for the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command, noted in an email.

“The distinct uniform serves to identity Canadian Special Operations Forces Command as the fourth Canadian Armed Forces environment and strengthen organizational morale and cohesion across CANSOFCOM,” Cadieux said.

The uniforms will be issued to those who are considered “operators” within the command, meaning they have done unique special forces training and can take on front-line roles.

The uniforms would be worn at events such as ceremonial and routine parades, Remembrance Day, and for guards of honour.

The DEU uses existing Canadian military design patterns but has the same color scheme as those uniforms worn during the Second World War by the joint U.S.-Canadian First Special Service Force. That unit has been dubbed the Devil’s Brigade, and Canadian special forces say they trace their lineage back to those 1940s-era soldiers. First Special Service Force-style boots are also being worn by Canadian special forces.
