Former Titles for Canadian Forces

There is news in Ottawa this morning that Canada will return the titles of the Maritime Command, Air Command and Land Force Command to their former title of the Canadian Army, Royal Canadian Air Force, and Royal Canadian Navy today.

It will happened 100 years to the day that the British granted Royal Consent to the Naval Service of Canada that it could call itself the Royal Canadian Navy.

Defence Minister Peter MacKay is announcing the name changes in Halifax today.
