I used to watch Dudley Do Right when I was a kid.   Dudley must be past mandatory retirement age Smiley

He can't retire as long as Snidely Whiplash is on the loose! Who would rescue Nell from the train tracks?

Looking real good. Don't forget the white lanyard. Where did you get your tunic? Nice looking. Here I am in my RE tunic made by Coon Creek Old West.

Thanks, Ed

I have the lanyard, just didn't have it on for the photo.   I bought 2 tunics an original and a reproduction.  The one in the photos is the reproduction.  I bought it off ebay for under $100.  The seller has tunics in all different sizes.  If you're in the market for one.  Go on Ebay and type in RCMP Red Serge or Tunic.  He didn't have my size listed, so I messaged him.  That's how I found out he stocks all the sizes.

That looks GREAT! (From an ignorant American who only had good feelings about the RCMP/NWMP prior to reading what some of our Canadian pards have written here.)

P.S.  I have appreciated the RCMP response to various police funerals over the years.

I always had nothing but respect for the NWMP/RCMP too.   It's a shame they've apparently lost a step or two in the eyes of their citizens.  I totally agree they've had a good presence at American police funerals.

I forgot to ask but what pistol are you carrying, Mountie txchuckcook? I carried my .45 New Services when I wore my red tunic and swapped out my RE collar insignia for RCMP insignia. Did your outfit come from Singapore? That the only one that I see.

Singapore is the correct one.  Barry is the person I contacted.  I believe he's the contact or partner in the states.  He was very easy to work with.  The first tunic they sent did not fit.  I sent it back and they exchanged it.   As of now, I'm using a Colt 45LC.

More than just a step or two, I assure you. Their anti-gun track record over the last few years has dropped their popularity with the general public immensely. One of Sir Robert Peel's principles of good and effective policing is willing public support. The modern rcmp (note the lack of capitals) has utterly disregarded that.

There are still many good Mounties out there, the problem is with their politicized upper management. A national police force ought not to be making up arbitrary rules re: what guns vetted, licenced gun owners can have and under what conditions. That is more than a little over the top, more like one would expect from a Third World police state.

You guys are representing them from an era where they were still held in high regard - except for out native and Metis populations. They still hold grudges stemming from historic wrongs as the enforcers of government policy.

I wouldn't be happy at all with arbitrary rules on firearms by law enforcement either.  We have a hard enough time dealing with liberal Democrats.  Most of them have zero knowledge on firearms.  Their lack of knowledge never stops them from talking and trying to pass anti-gun legistation.    I've read several posts by members of the RCMP.  Apparently, some of the rank and file have concerns with their leadership.

Make sure that your lanyard knot touches your top button.  Sgt Preston missed this a few times.  Now you need the RCMP metal tags for the shoulder boards.  Also why not promote yourself to Sgt. three hooks and a crown worn on only the right arm.  Might as well give yourself 2 or 3 service stars (each 5 yrs service) worn on the upper left arm mid way between elbow and shoulder.

The RCMP is still a good outfit, They just badly need a leadership adjustment at the senior level.

Creek,

That's good info on the lanyard knot.  I wasn't aware of the knot rule, I appreciate the heads up.  I purchased a pair of RCMP shoulder titles last week.  They haven't arrived yet.  I've been keeping an eye out for Sgt stripes with crown, service stars, crossed pistols and crossed rifles.   I'm sure they will turn up soon.

We were talking about RCMP members attending law enforcement funerals.  Here's a photo from 2009.  This picture shows maybe half of the Mounties that were there as they prepared to march in.  It was very impressive and a great show of support to the families of the four fallen officers.

You got that right! Hate to keep hammering away at this .....

But the rank & file will always close ranks when the chips are down. For example, after the travesty of kicking in 1500 doors at High River, Alberta, to search for guns and ammo after residents had been evacuated due to a devastating flood, not ONE has stepped forward to say who issued the order.

No one has been named, no one has been disciplined, no one has been charged. The Army had been patrolling in LAV's and operating boats while this was happening. When they realized what was going down, they withdrew, thereby saving their honour. The rcmp sacrificed their's by following orders.

Mountie Txchuckcook, I ordered one. Lets see what I get. My 1912 Punitive Expedition tunic got sent back twice before I got one that fit and it's still on the short side but the sleeves work. I'm thinking that it came from WPG.

Is your holster for a revolver or a semi auto?  Just wondering what era it is from.

It's made for a revolver.

I finally acquired all the necessary Mountie gear for my impression.   Now working on building a gun cart specific for a Mountie.   I've decided to modify a dog sled.   My thoughts are to install wheels on the inside of the runners, add canvas or wood sides with the RCMP emblem on both sides.   Build an oak rifle rack which follows the angle/contour of the sled.   Install a wood box in the bed for ammo and gun supplies.  Add a wooden box for a cooler on the runners behind the seat.  Once loaded drape a buffalo hide over the loaded bed.   It should turn out to be a pretty unique gun cart.

 What a neat idea, be sure to show us pics when you get it done.  You might have to change your alias to "Sgt Preston"'  Cheesy

Now you need a Malamute to pull the cart.

Another idea would be a Metis Shaganappi cart with babiche (raw hide) wrapped wheels. Rattle Snake Jack has just such a cart, a real work of art.

Creek,  We must think alike.  I contacted SASS last week and changed my alias to Sergeant Klondike.   I'll post photos when I've finished the sled.

PJ,   I had to do a google search for Metis Shaganappi cart.  That would be a good cart too.
