Canadian Provost Corps
Korean War Veterans

The deployment of Canadian troops (25th Canadian Infantry Brigade) in support of the United Nations operations in Korea in 1950 - 1955 encompassed a force of some 150 members of the Canadian Provost Corps who were responsible for the provision of service police duties, criminal investigative services and the operation of a field detention barracks. Members of the C Pro C were subsequently integrated with the Commonwealth Division, a formation of British, Australian and Canadian brigades. In addition; the infantry and armoured regiments of the Canadian brigade had a Provost increment attached to them.

As there is no known official, all encompassing, nominal roll of those members of the C Pro C who served in Korea, several veterans of that campaign set out to develop such a list based on the recollections of active members of the Canadian Provost Corps Virtual Association. In some cases the actual period of an individual's deployment is depicted in brackets. Though fading memories was a factor, as can be expected, the C Pro C Korean Veterans still managed to produce from memory over 50% of the names listed below.

Subsequent research of available resources revealed additional names, however; the list is far from being complete, so, if anyone can add any names, please e-mail the web master at ( canadianprovostcorps@yahoo.ca ).
