"Our crime," Galloway wrote, "was that we were 'too British' in uniform and character to pass muster with the Francophone hierarchy which dominated the Defence Department at the time. The Unification program was the official excuse, but the program itself was partly a gimmick to 'Americanize' the Canadian forces and eliminate, as far as possible, the British traditions of the past." (Wikipedia) He served for more than 6 decades. This is an account of his personal military service with a short polemic against the unification of the Canadian services. He died in 2004.
