The new RCAF adopted the RAF’s motto Per Ardua Ad Astra – “Through adversity to the stars” – which replaced the CAF’s original motto Sic Itur Ad Astra – “Such is the pathway” (or “This is the way”) to the stars. The RCAF also adopted the RAF’s blue-grey uniform and, a couple of decades later, also borrowed the RAF’s march past.

The RCAF also went back to silver cloth tunic wings, replaced the gold thread wings which were around from the time I joined.  Metal wings are still gold though.

We also kept our rank structure from WW1, based on army ranks.
