Defence review to improve deployment benefits

By Stephen J. ThorneThe federal government will no longer tax deployed military and police personnel,
regardless of their mission’s risk, under changes proposed by Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan. The measure is part of the coming defence review and is retroactive to Jan. 1. It will apply
to all of the approximately 1,450 personnel currently on international operations.

John McCrae’s baptism of fire

By Don Gillmor

The Boer War started the year John McCrae (REAR, LEFT) graduated from the University of Toronto’s medical school. He had served as an officer in the military reserves and had a romantic view of war that was soon stripped away by the realities in South Africa. More men died of disease than in combat. The field hospitals were a disaster.

He wrote in his diary: “21 July 1900, Our baptism of fire.”

 

May 31, 1915

Fresh from the trenches at Festubert, France,
the Canadians are assigned to the Givenchy sector.
