Based off the Canadian Special Operations Regiment's latin motto for "let us dare", the Audeamus features a V-42 Stiletto superimposed on the WarDoll logo, along with the Bible verse 2 Samuel 22:38 NIV, “I pursued my enemies and crushed them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed."
In addition to the dual RMJ Shrike Tomahawk featured in front of the First Nations headress, a G.K. Chesterton Quote sits above and below the entirety of the design.
"Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die. 'He that will lose his life, the same shall save it,' is not a piece of mysticism for saints and heroes. It is a piece of everyday advice for sailors or mountaineers. It might be printed in an Alpine guide or a drill book. This paradox is the whole principle of courage; even of quite earthly or brutal courage. A man cut off by the sea may save his life if we will risk it on the precipice.
He can only get away from death by continually stepping within an inch of it. A soldier surrounded by enemies, if he is to cut his way out, needs to combine a strong desire for living with a strange carelessness about dying. He must not merely cling to life, for then he will be a coward, and will not escape. He must not merely wait for death, for then he will be a suicide, and will not escape. He must seek his life in a spirit of furious indifference to it; he must desire life like water and yet drink death like wine."
