As you can see
The Prince of Darkness has returned,
and the Christmas/New Years Holidays are over .
Now that Christmas, that large Christian Celebration when every one
is supposed to send salutations of Peace to Men of Goodwill, is over.
Christmas for some consists of twelve days of Christmas, Little
Christmas, Epiphany, etc. Ukrainian Christmas was last Saturday
I have kept my post till January 6, 2008 is over and now for ease of
understanding, I will post in numeric form
1.) Staff Officers, in particular, 'Aide de Comps, Aide de Camps or
AdC's) were detached from their regimental duties to form part of
chain of command - they were message carriers. The ADC would carry
messages to the 'Brigades' under their general's charge. The ADC
would carry messages for the Generals passing them on to the correct
people'. (Duties of Staff Officers).
2.) The Christmas Dispatch was issued on behalf of the Crown Forces
North America Staff that are listed at
Those units listed at http://1812crownforces.tripod.com
accepted the field command of the Staff listed. Units listed usually
attend the Crown Forces Events, Grand Tactical and send their
Officers and NCOs to the Crown Forces School, Fort York
3.) Because one raises a unit does not immediately invoke that the
person in question owns the Regiment, Name of the Regiment, Section
or Unit being raised.
Because one raises a unit does not make it so.
4.) To have your Unit listed at http://1812crownforces.tripod.com
must contact the page owner (larrylozon [at]yahoo.ca) and the
information will forwarded to the Crown Forces Commanding Officers.
The Commanding Officers in turn will inform the other Staff Officers
of the intention and the Unit will be informed of their decision.
(Crown Forces North America
1812) is a private web page which was created for ease of contact
between Crown Forces Units, Event Coordinators, Historic Sites, etc.
(WAR Of 1812
Events) is a private web page which was created to list 1812 events
for the ease of Units, Event Coordinators, Historic Sites, etc.
Merchants) is a private web page which was created to list sutlers,
merchants, etc., who are subscribers to the WarOf1812 Yahoo Group
(United States Forces 1812) ) is a
private web page which was created for ease of contact between USA
Units, Event Coordinators, Historic Sites, etc.
9.)If Unit Commanders change, it will be the responsibility of the
outgoing Commander to supply the owner of
(Crown Forces North America 1812)
with the new Commander's name and email address, the new Commander
will be added to this list and the outgoing Commander deleted. If the
Unit Commander does not have access to the internet a Unit
contact will be supplied in the Unit Commander stead
(Crown Forces North America
1812) web site is usually updated at the first of every year or when
existing information changes
I hope this eliminates any confusion to the listings on certain 1812
web pages and eliminates any confusion connected with my position as

Thank you for your post
I can assure you and all that L2 is not ill
I have said what I had to towards the person involved to his personal
email and not on this Yahoo Group expressly
"That it is Christmas, that large Christian Celebration, when every
one issues a Peace to Men of Goodwill" thus it is not the time for
Politics and slurs (or Flamewars)
I issued a Merry Christmas Dispatch from the Crown Forces North
America and the Staff that are listed at
No more no less . . .
After the holiday season I will address this subject
I shall now finish my glass of Chateau Rayas (Chateauneuf-Du-Pape)
and wish all Seasons Greetings and echo the words of Sergeant Major
" Merry Christmas to all! Merry Winter Solstice and Happy Hanukah too.
The Prince of Darkness will return after the Holidays .....

To anyone I have inadvertently slighted: see Mr Harris' seasonal
greeting, especially the warranty part. What he said!
Now, about the Crown Forces list. Gee, L2 must be ill - he hasn't
piped up yet, so I will jump in in his defence.
Key point, as I'm sure the man will tell us shortly is that he just
runs it! If the info. is missing, out of date or erroneous, it is
the right,privilige and responsibility of the unit(s) in question to
send him the correct info.! And if you don't care to do that, you
don't get on the list, or maybe get on with wrong data.
L2 doesn't write them , he just tells them. So, if the 3rd
Independant Underwater Dragoons, who've been at every event this
year, don't write in to tell Larry that they exist and that Corporal
Hagendaaz commands, then they don't get on the list.
