Canadian Forces Women's Uniform, 1968
This collage of five photographs shows the women's uniform introduced in 1968 for the three elements of the unified Canadian Forces.
Women serving in the navy, army, and air force would all have worn this green uniform, which differed between the three services in details like badges. According to Sentinel magazine, published by the Canadian Forces, the new uniform was "chic, military and happily feminine." In the 1980s, it was replaced by distinctive uniforms for the navy, army, and air force.
