Default Canadian High-Priced Help....

Left to right: Major General C. Vokes (4th Armoured Division), General H. D. C. Crerar (Army Commander), Field Marshal Sir Bernard L. Montgomery, Lieutenant General B. G. Horrocks (30 British Corps, Attached Canadian Army), Lieutenant General G. C. Simonds (2 Corps), Major General D. C. Spry (3rd Infantry Division), and Major General A. B. Mathews (2 Division).

Crerar's A Mess was for the two ADCs and the First Canadian Army's senior staff officers.They ate well,off a silver service and tablecloths,with wine at times and drinks.Crerar never drank much: nor did anyone in A Mess.It was generally a happy mess, though Brig.Geoffrey Walsh and Churchill Mann could drive the ADCs crazy.

From;The Weight of Command,by J.L. Granastein
