A terrific (freezing!) day in the Brecon Beacons. We eventually found the crash site of WW2 Spitfire X4588. The Spitfire crashed in 1942, killing the 20 year old, Canadian pilot Sgt Donald Perry Carruthers. We owe a HUGE debt of gratitude to these brave Canadian Servicemen, that gave their lives to help save us from Nazi Germany.
The wreck site was really tricky to find as it is quite small and in a very remote location. I was just about ready to give up looking, when we spotted it. (Wreck at roughly SO0118)

The #carlzeiss #biotar really takes an interesting picture. This was pretty much straight from the camera to my phone, with some very minor adjustments to correct the colour-cast. Strange lens but I love it. #rodania #rcaf #royalcanadianairforce #breitling #omega #monopusher #vintagechronograph

Just got back from the Toronto Military Show; here are my finds - a private purchase 1950’s RCAF officer wedge cap, 1959 RCAF enlisted service cap and a 50’s Canadian ribbon bar for WWII service. All in all, $23 well spent.

Corporal4Life Apparel is a Veteran owned and operated company that makes Canadian military themed apparel. 🍁

A percentage of every sale from Corporal4Life Apparel is donated to PTSD BattleCry, a charity dedicated to raising awareness and emotional support for those fighting PTSD by providing individuals with service dogs for support and companionship.

Check out our interview below! ********** Veteran Advance:
How did you first get started with Corporal4Life Apparel?

Corporal4Life Apparel:
It all started with a conversation over beers with a fellow veteran about how American veterans have so many different shirts, hats, flags, decals, etc., that show not only their pride in service but also their pride in being American. I found Canada was lacking in that pride and that it was time Canadian veterans start showing their pride in service, and Canadians (in general) start showing more pride in our great country.

Veteran Advance:
What is the best advice you've ever been given?

Corporal4Life Apparel:
The best advice I've ever been given is to never give up. That advice has gotten me through some of the worst and most stressful times in life. There has been more than one occasion where I wanted to shut down Corporal4Life but I always go back to that advice and keep moving forward.

Veteran Advance:
What did you learn from the worst boss you've ever had?

Corporal4Life Apparel:
The worst boss I've ever had happened to be one of my section commanders in the Army. The way he treated his troops was brutal, and that showed me how not to lead, which actually helped me become a good section 2IC and a better soldier.

Veteran Advance:
Who or what inspires you and why?

Corporal4Life Apparel:
What inspires me are people who are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, and I don't mean running people over on the way, but people who work their asses off and do what they have to do no matter the obstacles.

Veteran Advance:
What are you currently reading?

Corporal4Life Apparel:
I am currently reading 'Arms: the culture and credo of the gun' ********** @c4l_apparel
