    I think its: Strong. Proud.

    Atleast thats what some of the posters say.
    Join The Army, Visit exotic places, meet strange people, then kill them.

    I do beilive Strong, Proud are the mottos of the Canadian Forces as a whole.... Just beifly scanning over the Army website all I can find is:

    One Army, One Team, One Vision.

    For those interested, I've found this as well:

    I couldn't find anything on the airforce.

    Air Force: Per Ardua ad Astra; through adversity to the stars

    Isn't the Navy, ready aye ready?

    Also, I thought the army mottos were up to each individual corps/regiment.

    I think "the Strong, the Proud" are slogans, rather than mottos, but I could be wrong.

    Correct on all counts. The Strong and Proud (also Proud, Proven and Professional) business is just recruiting and publicity material.

    I think 5 Field is "Ubique, Quo Fas et Gloria Ducunt" which means "quickly, whether right and glory lead".. I don't know about the others.

    Almost 'Ubique' means everywhere. 'Everwhere, Whither Right and Glory Lead' Same motto as the Royal Artillery

    My affiliated Regiments motto is 'Honi soit Qui Mal Y Pense' (Shame on him who thinks ill of it.) It's written in a garter, which appears in many regiments, and corps' capbadges, it's also on the Royal Coat of Arms. The garter symbolises the Order of the Garter, which is one of Englands oldest chivalrys. Basically the Order (back in the day of 1348) was 25 knights and King Edward III, it was like a reward for the highest loyalty and military merit given by a knight.


    Bit of history to chew on. lol

    Not quite accurate. 'Per Ardua Ad Astra' was the motto of the Royal Canadian Air Force. When the Canadian Air Force was first formed in 1920, the motto 'Sic Itur Ad Astra' was used, which means 'Such is the pathway to the stars'.

    The Air Force has now returned to this original motto.

    Individual regiments almost always have their own motto, but the motto of the Infantry Branch as a whole is "Ducimus" - We Lead.

    The artillery have the same motto because we essentially all have the same job we serve the guns and its "Everywhere Wither Right or Glory Lead".

    The Governor General's Horse Guards motto is Nulli Secundus (Second to None) also on our cap badge is Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense
