Caring Cadet Looking for Some Networking Help for His Friend in the GTA

Hello Mr. Oliver,

I have a very dear friend of mine who is in need of a break.

My friend’s shop where she works will be closing down shortly and she is searching for a job in the GTA.

She is looking for an entry level administration position, personal assistant, promotional advertising or work of that nature. She is currently a student at Humber College studying design.

I was hoping your vast networking and contacts with the RMC Club would be able to help her out.

Thank you very much,

Ed note: OCdt Gabor Somogyvari has been a dependable contributor to e-Veritas over his 4 years at the college.  He is the Cadet Wing PMC and a piper in the band.  An all-round good guy.

If there is anyone out there reading this with contacts in the GTA – please contact Gabor personally (or myself) and we will forward the resume of his friend.

A good example of an officer-cadet working on his networking skills!


Bill & Rolande – Great e-Veritas issue, just wanted a brief aside for a reader’s comment, which of course can certainly be linked to me, but I cannot claim credit nor deny plagiarism for the attached commentary. It might be good to remind folks of today’s hurried and harried instantaneous electronic lifestyle expectations, and poke (or Polk) a little bit of fun at the inane.

It may even serve as a good reminder to temper Archie Beare’s comment – in spite of his very own typographical misspelling of laps (sic) – in a response to the tremendous accomplishment of 3 RMC cadets in their brave and courageous ascent of the highest peak in the western hemisphere. Shows how easy such minor triviata can happen under the best of intentions. Additionally, the English language has historically possessed an incredible number of dualitistic vagaries in spelling and meaning, given typically within the numerous humourous differences among British, US and Canadian dictionaries and our many regional dialects of evolving Commonwealth descent. Pogey or Dunny, take your pick? Its all about communication, not Victorian class distinctions that died a century ago.

Below –  “Spell Czech” anecdote came from Readers Digest, re-jiggered (to quote Geoff Bennett on a previous LCG trip down the Rideau) sometime over the past decade. Perhaps other readers might enjoy taking a shot at translating the fun into their own busy everyday lives.

Cheers & TDV

Eye halve a spelling chequer. It came with my pea sea.

It plainly marques four my revue miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a quay and type a word and weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar write. It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid, it nose bee fore two long

And eye kin put the error rite. Its rarely ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it, I am shore your pleased two no.

Its letter perfect in its weigh, my chequer tolled me sew.



I am conducting research on RNCC in Halifax, N. S. I would like to know if anyone there can identify which of the two officers seated on the right in this 1911 photo is R. A. Yonge and which one is Basil Shakespear Hartley.

Eight-year Lieutenant E. A. E. Nixon and Commander E. H. Martin are first and second on the left.

Any assistance is appreciated.
