Steve often told me the story of the Newfie cook he had in his company who, when faced with turning roast beef into steaks for a BBQ and told by CSM Horan to prepare for a fe more mouths, replied with, "By jaysus Sar'nt Majer bye, I'm slicin' dem so tin now, dey only got one side".
I missed the Sgt-Maj's birthday celebrations at the CP Legion, but I'd visited with him this past Christmas, which was closer to his actual birthday (26 Dec).
Funny how we permanently refer to good Sgt-Maj's as just that! I jokingly address Steve as 'Sgt-Maj', and while I've not seen MWO(Ret'd) Terry Seaver in afew years, I still consider him to be the epitomy of the Sgt-Maj during my time in the RCR, and always addressed him as such. He was another professional soldier, who never asked a subordinate to do anything that he wasn't prepared to do himself, or had already done.
1RCR C Coy... who's got stories of when 'Charlie' Coy changed to 'Charles' Coy?
