Re: Unauthorised Entry

Thomas got out of the Humvee once it stopped. He slung his rifle and waited by the vehicle providing security but in a non obvious way. While he was standing there he studied the area looking for signs of battle or anything else that looks interesting or out of the ordinary.

The men smiled and nodded, returning the greeting.

Nothing looked out of the ordinary, and it didn't seem like this part of town had faced pitched fighting. The buildings along Fraser Highway seemed intact, as were the rows of town houses behind them.

The older of the two Mounties (both men) moved closer. "Corporal Hornbaugh. So, what's up, guys? nice to see you all, are you from Vancouver Island or the interior? We heard maybe government forces were coming west, but also there were military on Vancouver Island. Any news?" The inner part of the province was called "the interior" and could mean up north like Lillooet, Mac's home, or east like Kamloops, Vernon, Penticton.

"We're a bit of a mixed bag, Corp," said Mac.

"I'm Christopher Little Hawk MacDonald, originally out of Lillooet. We've just sort of come together, from assorted branches of service. I'm Army, joined the Rocky Mountain Rangers when the war broke out. Nothing to go home to, so I've just stuck around."

one of the guys in fatigues joked, "Oh, a Rocky Mountain Ram-Raper, eh? i hear you guys gave the Soviets hell a little while back. Glad to meet you. I'm Matt, this is Cole and that's Dave and Mike. That's Lisa."

As far as Regimental nicknames went, the one for Mac's old unit, the RMRR, was perhaps a little more offensive in a good-natured way but definitely not fighting words. It indicated this man, like Mac, had probably also been a Militia at some point.

The men nodded, as did the sole female militia member, a confident-looking woman in her 30's armed with a shotgun. Aldergrove was deep in BC's little "bible belt", a place known for its social and religious conservatism compared to urban Canadian communities. Still, not all women from these communities didn't want to stay at home or accept their assumed roles, and there wasn't much the men could do to stop them with manpower being so scarce.

"So you guys come down from Lillooet? Or that's just where your from?"

Re: Unauthorised Entry
The unit is originally from Vancouver Island, they first landed at UBC so I joined them there. We've been kicking arses from there to here dealing with bikers, supremacists, mass murderers and such. There are a few Red Army defectors out there minding their business. Right now we are sent to deal with the border. Apparently there is a big Soviet Offensive coming down the Island. Our headquarters is putting a fight and it's in our best interest to develop our strategic background.

Taras got comfy around the group. This seemed to be a nice lot after all.

We'll be happy to share intel and even conduct joint patrols, etc. We are after a gang of americans and their elephants causing trouble in and out the country.

Kelsey settles in, she'd been quiet so far.

"Kelsey Champlain, Royal 22nd Regiment, attached to the RSR."
Her English is crisp, unaccented.  But is followed by equally fluent French.
"Je me souviens."  ... And a smile.

The woman smiled and replied to Kel,

"Royal Vingt-Deux, eh? A Van Doo! Long ways from home. I was in the Navy cadets on the Island in Nanaimo. I heard that all got nuked. Also Deadman's Island out by Stanley Park.

"We are sure glad to see you guys. Lots of people don't mind the Yanks coming around. Good people, and they have helped out. But you know how they are, making suggestions on how to do things, walking around acting like they own the place. Not that they can help it, I guess, just the way some of them are.

"So are you guys here to help with the bikers out near the prison? They've been pretty quiet the last few weeks for some reason. Haven't seen any around."

Re: Unauthorised Entry
Kelsey nods to the woman.

"Oui, Vingt-Deux.  I hope I am not one of the last, but I have some family out this way, and I was assigned out here when that ball went up I was already detached duty."  She shrugs, going over the pain of loss repeatedly makes you hardened to it.

Kelsey nods about the Yanks and Bikers.  "Tell us what you can about both.  We appreciate the Yanks, but this is Canada."

Re: Unauthorised Entry
In reply to Kelsey Sarah Champlain (msg # 190):

The woman replied, along with input from the men and the Mountie, "the bikers call themselved the "Razorbacks". They are not a prewar club and formed after the bombs dropped, far as we can tell, mainly from inmates at the prison in Matsqui over in Abbotsford with some deserters from all sides. HA's have been seen in the area multiple times over the last year or two so we believe they were allies. They used to come into town to drink and trade but never broke the law while they were here. We think they have a couple chapters of ten members or so each, both in the Abbotsford area. They stopped coming around altogether about a month ago."

This would have been around the time that a new "President" of the Hells Angels consolidated control over the decentralised HA chapters and various independent motorcycle gangs in the Lower Mainland. Although, "independent" was probably a misnomer, with the HAs being the biggest dog around everyone else was assumed to be under their domination in one sense or another. But it was an indication that the lines of power were shifting, if in unknown directions.

"The Yanks are based in Bellingham, just over the border. For some reason they seem to be mounted on elephants. For God's sake! Why they can't drive around in Humvees like normal people is beyond me. Anyways, like I've said they've been around. Patrolling with a platoon mounted on two or three elephants. They claim to be chasing down "marauders" that come across the border, I have my doubts. Not surprisingly they are well armed. Rumour has it the US military, maybe not these ones in particular, are a big source of black market weapons and equipment. But there's a lot of stuff left over from when the Soviets invaded and the US forces helped us beat them off so it's hard to tell."

Re: Unauthorised Entry
Corporal Abbott had been quiet, listening to the conversation.

"We've met those Yanks with the elephants.  They seem to think they can go wherever they want to without regard to borders. I somehow doubt they're chasing criminals."

In reply to Stanley Alistair Abbot (msg # 192):

The Mountie NCO nodded. "I've no doubt they find people they think are doing wrong.

"Crime's actually pretty low out here because most people were evacuated before the bombs fell, or they're gone. Died and so on. Those that are left are farmers and scavengers. But there are some gangs left around, and the deserters are getting desperate. The Razorbacks out of the old Matsqui Medium Security are always on peoples' minds around here.

"We're not crazy about American soldiers coming up and chasing criminals. That's our job. We've told them to coordinate with us, that if they do detain someone to turn them over to us. But we usually get stonewalled or some BS about them "resisting arrest". Don't get me wrong, folks around here appreciate the help and sometimes the legalities don't concern folks. But there's no oversight. If they grab the wrong person, shoot someone by mistake, how would we know? They're a lot better armed than we are, it's not like we could arrest them."


The Corporal looked up as a group of farmers exited the Legion Hall cum town hall. They headed over towards where a couple horse-drawn wagons were pulled up.

"OK, looks like Mayor Rousseau is free. Just go in, talk to the receptionist."

Re: Unauthorised Entry
In reply to Cpl. Hornbaugh (msg # 193):

The group was ushered in to see the mayor. Master Mcrae, Able Seaman Lo and Constable Sochaki waited outside, monitoring the radio and watching the vehicles.

"Town Hall" was a converted Legion hall, as Aldergrove wasn't a separate municipal entity from the city of Langley before the war. The outside wall was decorated by a large mural of soldiers, sailors and airmen serving in WWI and WWII under the flag of Britain and the pre-1965 "Maple Leaf" flag, with the more modern flag woven into the motif. There was even a propeller/flag statue out by the sidewalk.

Inside was linoleum floors with wood panel sidings. Trophy cases displayed old war honours from WWI, WWII, Korea, more modern Peacekeeping missions. Nothing from the current war. These honours are not bestowed until after the conflict was past, and as of now there hadn't been anyone to give or receive them.

Rousseau's office was down the wide entry corridor, on the right, in the old Legion hall's administration office.

In reply to helbent4 (msg # 194):

The Mayor stepped out of his office, holding some papers. He smiled. "Just a moment." Reaching back, he put the papers back on his desk. "There. Sorry about that. I'm Walt Rousseau. We got word from the roadblock you were coming in! So good to see you folks! I'm sorry for having to check IDs like we're some kind of nightclub, we do get deserters and criminals trying to bluff their way in by pretending to be the authorities, like the official government or the army. They made it too, the first time.

"Can I get you something? We have pastries. A little coffee as well, we grow it in greenhouses. Plenty of milk, of course, and we make our own sugar from beets. We also have liquor and beer but it's a little early in the day for that. Lots of good clean water. I worked for the water district before the war and clean water is one thing we have a lot of around here."


His accent betrayed a Caribbean origin, as well as perhaps some trace of French.

Re: Unauthorised Entry

Thomas was not shy and graciously accepted the offer of a coffee, strong and black no sugar. Once it arrived even the smell brought back memories of better times. It did not really matter where he was based be it Bickleigh Barracks near Plymouth or HMNB Clyde he always managed to find a decent coffee shop of some kind or another.

At Bickleigh Barracks it was a shop that was best described as a greasy spoon that catered to an early crowd of dock workers and fishermen so it was deserted for most of the day. At HMNB Clyde, home of the fleet protection group it was a small business that sold coffee and coffee machines and had a couple of small tables in the back. It roasted its own coffee and was able to source single estate beans from all over.

Both were now ash in the breeze being hit early in the piece and HMNB Clyde being under attack when Thomas had left on one of the submarines he had been charged with protecting. He wondered if the community might be up to trading some of the beans as he listened to the Mayor.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
Kelsey grins at the mayor after he speaks, pleased to hear his accent.  She speaks to him in French, with obvious pleasure.

"Salutations honorés maire . Mon nom est sergent Kelsey Champlain . Puis- je vous demander où vous avez appris votre français?"  (Greetings honored Mayor.  My name is Sergeant Kelsey Champlain.  Might I ask where you learned your French?)

She is being amiable, and her French is very natural, as if it were her native language.  (Which it is).

Mac followed in quietly, but his eyes lit up at the offer of coffee. He was also of the strong black no sugar persuasion. He listened to the conversation, but got lost once they switched to French.

Rousseau smiled at Kelsey, pleased to be addressed in what was his first language.

Ah oui! Je parlais français comme un enfant en Haïti . Je suis venu au Canada avec mes parents en tant que réfugié.

(Ah yes! I spoke French as a child in Haiti. I came to Canada with my parents as a refugee.")

The Mayor ducked into the staff room next door and started pouring coffee.

"We are quite glad to see you. You are representing the Federal Government?"

Kelsey grins to the Mayor "Bon à entendre la langue maternelle."
(It is good to hear the mother tongue)

Then a nod as her own coffee arrives, normally she'd go black, but in this day and age the luxury of cream and sugar is hard to pass up.

"As well, I imagine you want to talk to the Americans. You're too late, I'm afraid. They talked to the veterinarian, then left this morning. Back across the border I presume."

"One of the stolen elephants was carrying an injury," said Mac, who was still worried about them.

"Woozle, the female, had a bullet wound in the flank, which had become infected. The veterinarian will be able to tell us if that's what she was asked about. The male, Hephalump, was OK when he was stolen, but who knows what's happened to him since."

Re: Unauthorised Entry

Thomas sipped his coffee as he listen to the conversation. He wondered how far the Americans could get in the time it has taken them to get here. The Americans had vehicles, but with the elephants they would have to keep to the animals pace so there is a very good chance they could catch them if they have not crossed over the border. To be honest he wondered if they could pursue them if they have.
