Australian navy to get Xmas off

There aren’t enough personnel to operate the Australian navy, so they’re shutting the whole operation down for December and January.

I don’t know what kind of state the Canadian navy is in, but we aren’t too far removed from a time when the whole Canadian land forces might have had Christmas off.

Australia and Canada: Two nations separated by a vast ocean but bound by history and a recent tradition of comically insubstantial armed forces.
