My Royal Canadian Air Force

When enlisting in the RCAF in September of 1958 there were a couple of cultural changes that took some time to get used to. One was saluting with the palm of my hand facing forward and the second was, when coming to attention, lifting my right foot to the height of my left knee and driving it into the pavement.  Oh.. and no one in four duty watches and no seatime.  That left considerable more time for partying.  I was told that my Radar Plot trade in the RCN was similar to a Fighter Control Operator (FCO) trade. I later transfered to the Air Force Police (AFP).
