Web Master`s Comment:
Anyone who served in the Canadian Provost Corps and was engaged in international operations can appreciate the many hours of painstaking work in keeping the white webbing, trades badges and the chevrons white, (utilizing toothpicks and white blanco) when so deployed. Memories! Aren't they awesome!

Photo was submitted by Mr Alan Nickolson, son of the late LCpl Axel Nickolson.
