Red Blazer



Several of our Vancouver Division Association members have asked about the necessity or requirement to purchase a RCMP Veterans’ Association red blazer.

Nationally, the RCMP Veterans’ Association has been encouraging members to purchase and wear the red blazer.  For the Vancouver Division, our Executive Committee has taken the position of a less formal dress code for our socials, luncheons and dinners.

For these occasions, members are encouraged to attend these functions in business casual dress with the exception of the Annual Levee.

For the Levee, we encourage members and guests to wear: blazer, sports jacket or similar attire.

For our Division, members are encouraged to purchase and wear the red blazer if they are:

1) on the Division’s Executive Committee; or

2) attending the Veterans’ Association Annual General Meeting; or

3) on the Division’s Ceremonial Troop; or

4) on the Division’s Honour Guard.

Veteran Dennis Ratcliffe has recently ordered and received a red blazer from the Saskatoon Division and was extremely impressed with the price and the quality of the product.  The price is significantly less than the traditional red serge material blazer ($550) and the new blazer is made of high quality polyester material.

If you are interested, you can contact Dennis at (604) 534-8292.

Details on the Saskatoon Division Red Blazer are as follows:

Saskatoon Divisioin has a supplier for Red Blazers.  They can be ordered through Craig Inkster by e-mail or by calling Craig at (306) 229-6704.
