The speaker's recent return from a trip to Korea. What he saw in Canada's Brigade there. The 27th Canadian Brigade in Europe. The creation of two replacement brigades in Canada to provide necessary reinforcements. Making provision for the rotation of our European Force. The role of the Reserve Army. The interdependence of the three Services, using Korea as an example. The essential part that each of the three services plays; the contributions of each to bringing about a situation which has made possible the cease fire talks in Korea. The mighty effort of the Western Powers to try to eventually resolve the East-West problem in terms of the cold war rather than allowing it to deteriorate into a shooting war. The importance of industry and manpower to the defence effort. What would be needed for deterrence. Again, the role of the Reserves. Supporting those representatives of firms who are prepared to give their time to Reserve Force training.
