Talking Shop (1942)

On July 2, 1942, a meeting was held at Canadian Military Headquarters with Field Security Officers to discuss general administrative issues related to field security personnel, equipment, and training. The meeting took place prior to the creation of the Canadian Intelligence Corps.

During the meeting, there was a discussion of whether to provide a Wireless Intercept Adjunct to Field Security Sections or to give certain Field Security personnel some signal training.

Historians of the era may notice an intervention by Lieutenant R.L Raymont. Raymont later served as Executive Staff Officer to the Chairman Chiefs of Staff and to the Chief of Defence Staff from 1951-1969.
