To Honour Canada's Military

Canadian Forces CF (Canadian Forces)

The Canadian Forces have derived many of their traditions and symbols from the military, navy and air force of the United Kingdom, including those with royal elements. Contemporary icons and rituals, however, have evolved to include elements reflective of Canada and the Canadian monarchy.

Peacekeepers monitor and observe peace processes in post-conflict areas and assist ex-combatants in implementing the peace agreements they may have signed. Such assistance comes in many forms, including confidence-building measures, power-sharing arrangements, electoral support, strengthening the rule of law, and economic and social development. Accordingly, UN peacekeepers (often referred to as Blue Berets or Blue Helmets because of their light blue berets or helmets) can include soldiers, police officers, and civilian personnel.
Land Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Branch Land Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Branch

As part of Integration in 1968, the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (RCEME) was disbanded, with some tradesmen transferred to other branches and others combined with RCAF Mobile Support Equipment (MSE) mechanics to form the Land Ordnance Engineering Branch (LORE). The former RCEME trades of Electrical Mechanical Technician, Vehicle Technician, and Weapons Technician were maintained. RCEME was not officially disbanded until Jan 1970. On 15 Jun, the official announcement of the Branch's new name, Land Ordnance Engineering Branch was announced but new badges did not appear until 1975. The new abbreviation was LORE and a new "wankel" cap badge was adopted, described below. Many soldiers felt the new designation did not adequately describe the new branch, and discussion of several new titles (include CREME and CEME) resulted in consensus on the title LEME - Land Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Branch. The branch was renamed on 15 May 1984.

Canadian Peace Keeping Service Medal (CPSM)
The prestigious Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to all United Nations Peacekeepers in 1988 in recognition of their collective efforts in the cause of peace. This inspired the creation of the Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medal (CPSM) to acknowledge the unique contribution to peace that Canadian peacekeepers have made since 1947.

Canadian Forces Decoration (CD)
The Canadian Forces' Decoration is awarded to officers and Non-Commissioned Members of the Canadian Forces who have completed twelve years of service. The decoration is awarded to all ranks, who have a good record of conduct.

The decoration is awarded to the regular forces, reserve forces, officers of the Cadet Instructors Cadre (CIC), Canadian Rangers and holders of honorary appointments in the CF. Service in the regular and reserve or auxiliary forces of the British Commonwealth of Nations will be counted towards the medal if the final five years have been served with the Canadian Forces and no other long service, good conduct or efficiency medal has been awarded for the same service. The medal may be awarded to persons in possession of any long service, good conduct or efficiency decoration or medal clasps, provided that the individual has completed the full qualifying periods of service for each award and that no service qualifying towards one award is permitted to count towards any other. The service need not be continuous.
