    That's a rough looking can of food and who doesn't like a good MRE story, let's run with it.

    This guy, Steve 1989 can be found eating, demonstrating and smoking some crazy rat paks from all parts of the globe.

    Here's his channel link.

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2I...idnnbWgJFiMeHA

    He's linked with this site which is full of past and current MRE info.

    Default Bunker Access

    After a flurry of letter writing, a few lefts and an upper-cut, we have been offered a 3 month pass to one of Canada's first, nuclear protected, Civil Defence shelters, as previously discussed. The legalities, waivers and confined space issues are being addressed and we intend to conduct small tours to interested parties. Details will be made available here when we get them. https://www.facebook.com/CanadianCiv...umAsscociation

    Meanwhile, we dug the prints out of archives for Canada's 2nd, known, discussed and disclosed, nuclear protected "provincial bunker". Anyone know anything about the Nuclear Detonation and Fall-out Reporting System? NDFRS?

    The pamphlets and stories we're getting from alliances and researchers has been over the top......so I'm gonna buy me a Mercury and go cruisin' on down the road. She's got a CAR # from 1953. http://www.canadiansoldiers.com/vehi...lemarkings.htm

    """"""Marking schemes continued to develop after the Korean War; War Department numbers gave way to CAR (Canadian Army Registration) numbers, in the format YY-XXXXX. YY was the last two digits of the year in which the vehicle entered Canadian service, followed by a dash and then a 5-digit number unique to the vehicle. For example: 54-82501. Unlike the wartime Census Numbers, the 5 digits were not related to the number of vehicles acquired in any given year."""""""

    Default Civil Defence Wetaskiwin

    We just crawled out of another nuclear shelter in the "Reception" town of Wetaskiwin, about 44km from Edmonton's S.E. boundry.

    wetas cd old m135 125.jpg

    It is currently being used as an archive, which is open to the public, so we asked to see the basement! They have moved these "Sealed" boxes around for 51 years and the current staff would not have been told of their significance. These were Mobile Feeding Units distributed en-mass to prepare for casualties from target areas. We've heard the rumors, found the documentation saying these were in hundreds of buildings......now we know.


    wetas cd old m135 059.jpg wetas cd old m135 063.jpg wetas cd old m135 090.jpg wetas cd old m135 102.jpg

    After the historical find in the basement and checking out the existing jail cell, the archive had prepared their inventory of Civil Defence literature for us. We now have documentation showing the M135 in use as a civilian rescue vehicle.

    Additional information came out of a large stack of folders and files which our organization, along with the Wetaskiwin Archive, will photo-document and make available for public web viewing.

    Looks like I'll be shopping for a crane and a trailer next!

    Default Mobile Feeding Unit

    Tried loading a few content pics but I'll need to do some sizing before you kids can see in the the rest of the boxes.

    Here's a start.

    This will be one of the first, if not the first, military/civilian joint rescue services handbook.

    Default Mfu

    Managed to get a few more pics loaded. This is page 1 of the Mobile Feeding Unit instruction manual and it was supplied by the Department of Health and Welfare. The Water buffalo comes from the Defence manual in the previous post, compliments of the Canadian Civil Defence Museum and the Wetaskiwin Archive.

    Here's a link to yet another shelter, where we find the identical kit to the one in Wetaskiwin...http://www.nelsonstar.com/news/219305301.html

    Default Civil Defence Truck

    After peeling through old news papers, we finally found a picture of my new project. The only other picture on record, so far, is from the back. This pic comes from the Wetaskiwin Archive and post-dates the American "Alert" convoy by one year. http://www.coldwarla.com/the-alert-america-convoy.html

    I rotated the 1st picture but it wouldn't load so head tilt required. This is the add for the brand new international in the previous post.

    The aircraft, all had roles in the early programs of nuke sniffing, sub spotting and bear chasing in the early 50's.

    Default Civil Defence Fort Saskatchewan

    It's a stretch saying these are Civil Defence items but this is the 'other' info I come across digging through old news clippings.

    The newspaper clippings provide leads to towns that still hold some rare items. One of those leads is supposed to net us 10 sirens this week so more pics coming.
