This thread went stale, but I think a .22 Trainer Forum would be useful; that would be any Lee Enfield rifle in .22 Cal Rim Fire.  

Keeping with the previous format; ".22 Enfield" title would work.   Most discussion would be on the No. 2, No. 7, CNo.7 and No. 8 Rifles.

The suggestion of a .22 sub forum has come up a few times.
So far no interest up the pipeline.
If we did create a .22 rifles or "Trainers" section I'd suggest including the .22 conversion trainer kits as well.
I'll run it up the flagpole again & see if anybody salutes it!

I'm surprised there isn't one.

Ahhh, the “old flag” as Dad would call it.  When he saw it flying at a home out on a country drive when I was a kid he would say “there’s still a few of us left in the Dominion of Canada”.

I distinctly remember the Canadian family members of my tribe when the old ensign was replaced by the modern red & white maple leaf one.
They were not thrilled. it was referred to a "the @$$RAG" for ever.Dead

i remember that controversy , seems their voices were not heard , but then when your rewriting  history as so many are today , i doubt that matters in the conversations , they can pretend to do it but in the end all of us know communism when we see it and we alll remember their history --as well as our own 

national socialism is still communism in my book , i reject it all

Shamu, my Dad never got over that.  We continued to fly the Red Ensign at home, and the Union Jack on Victoria Day.

The flag was fine and should never have been changed.

I've asked my dear wife to make sure my coffin is draped in the flag of the union when the time comes; it's always a worry in the back of your mind that the Scottish nationalists may get their way and the flag alters.

Edited to add; I hope that's a way off, too many rifles to shoot in the meantime!

I remember the Canadian flag-flap well.1965..the Liberals HAD to have their own snot-rag flag!
Every Canadian veteran & common folks alike were agin it!
The Red Ensign showed all the founding countries in the coat of arms(England,France,Scotland,Ireland). Its the flag the 2nd war & Korean vets served under.Its the flag they wanted to live under.
But Liberals are Liberals & to he!! with the people!
I still fly the Red Ensign @ my house(along with it's predecessor).
There was a movement to bring the Red Ensign back - petitions & all...but the Lie-berals labelled it a RACIST FLAG!!
Therefore they dismissed the motion.

The Canadian flag you speak of it the correct flag.

My family served in the Boer war, the First World War, Second World War, and the Korean War. 

The he!! to the liberals and the mule that rode in on then.

When my Dad was in public school, it was the Union Jack, then gradually, the Canadian Red Ensign became more common.  On occasions such as Queen Victoria Day and Dominion Day we flew the Union Jack.  As a kid, I had the job to raise and lower the flag every day.  

We had a row of full grown Lombardy Poplars and the top of the flag pole reached the top of the poplars, the flag could be seen for nearly a mile.   

My Dad did call that other flag the “Maple Rag”.
