Response to Re: Note

I know that 'Class C Call-out' was a term in use when I started with the Militia in 1977. Most of the CF terms used today came about after Integration in 1964. Integrating all of the administrative orders of the three services into one set of CFAOs took well over 5 years to complete. I'm not sure of when the orders for delineating Reserve service were published but it would more than likely be in that time period.

The Reserves of all three services went through a lot of administrative changes after Integration. Anyone remember the Ready Reserve, the Regional Reserve and the Mobile Command Reserve? It wasn't till about 1972 that the reserve re-organization was completed.

If you have the time, you could go to DHH in Ottawa and review the relevant CFSOs from 1965 to the early 1970's looking for the appropriate entry. (Actually, that's my idea of a good time.)

This doesn't answer your question but hopefully I've narrowed down your search parameters.
