Operation Calumet is Canada’s contribution to the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO), a little known international peacekeeping organization (not connected to the UN) comprising 11 countries and almost 2,000 troops. Their job is to monitor the 1979 peace treaty between Israel and Egypt: observe, report, verify.

Dick Averns was attached to the MFO through the Canadian Forces Artists Program in 2009.
