Reminiscence: - WO (Retired) Mike Franke:
I met Lt Murray Wilson in 1962, when he was the Provost Marshal at Calgary Provost Detachment. When I graduated out of Boot Camp. Bud Caruthers and I had a choice of postings and after a bit of research, Calgary Detachment was alleged to be the best posting in Canada, so, off we went. Murray ran a great Detachment and there are many good stories that could be told about him and the detachment while I was there. Through out my military career I frequently thought of him and have done so even in my retirement after 47 years of Government service. RIP great ex-boss and friend. Mike Franke

Wilkinson, George (Wilky): Lt. Col. CD (Ret'd) passed away on 12 May 2017.
Died in Victoria at age 99, a swift passing of a long, adventurous, happy life full of family and people who loved and respected him.

Predeceased by wife Isobel, parents Arnold and Kate Wilkinson (Reidy) and older brother Arnold, Wilky was born on Sturdee St. in Esquimalt on Feb 25, 1918. At age 3 the family moved into the home his father built at 1342 Liverpool St. in Esquimalt, now part of Naden and named the George Wilkinson Room in his honour.

Raised and schooled in Esquimalt, he then joined the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) in 1935 at the age of 17.

When WWII broke out the Patricias sailed from Halifax on Dec 17, 1939. In April 1940 he was seconded into the British Merchant Navy as a machine gunner on a DEMS (Defensively Armed Merchant Ship) collier operating in the North Sea. He was one of two PPCLI soldiers to have first seen action in WWII.

After an injury in 1941 George volunteered for a military police position in the Canadian Provost Corp, 2nd Infantry Div.

Following D-Day, he landed in Normandy in early July 1944 and fought with the 4th Canadian Armoured Division in France, Belgium and Holland, returning home to Canada and arriving in Vancouver on May 8, 1945. Shortly thereafter he married his pre-war sweetheart Isobel Muir Cockburn. During 65 years of marriage they lived in 30 homes in 5 provinces and three countries. They had two children, Diane and Patrick. George stayed with the military, serving as provost marshal with the UN Emergency Force in the Gaza Strip, Cyprus and also in Quebec, retiring from the forces in 1967 as a Lt. Colonel.

From 1968 to 1976 he worked both for External Affairs with a posting in Malaysia and also the Solicitor General`s Office in Ottawa. He retired in 1976 as Director of Security Planning, with 41 years of public service which he referred to as 41 years of undetected crime..

He and Isobel retired for good in 1976 and returned to live in Victoria.They had the best of retirements enjoying good health, the company of many friends, HAM radio, the Emergency Measures Response Team for Esquimalt, the arrival of grandchildren, sailing their Contessa 26 out of Esquimalt, world travel and - above all - golf at Royal Colwood Golf Course.

Wilky is survived by his children Diane (Don), Patrick (Cathy); his grandchildren Jennifer, Caroline (Rob), Adam (Jayne) and Joel (Tiffany); his great- grandchildren Julian, Miles and Isabelle.

Many thanks to the Berwick Royal Oak staff, community nurses and the nurses at Victoria Hospice. Special thanks to Drs. Wolovitz and Sager.

(WWII Veteran)

Photo of C Pro C WWII Vet, the late John Hoglund. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Eric Hoglund of Kamloops, BC on December 9, 2016 at the age of 95.

Dad's journey has been remarkable and impressionable. Born on January 24, 1921 in Woodnorth, MB, the eldest of five children. He left home at 15, picking up odd jobs, including working for CNR, before joining the army in November 1941. Dad served in the 22nd Provost Company, with postings in England, arriving Normandy, France in the D-day landings, Belgium and Netherlands during the nation's liberation. His nick name was Speedy for he was always, peddle to the metal on his motorcycle.

Upon returning to Canada in 1945, after WWII Dad met the love of his life Grace Amy Hill. They married on November 2, 1945 and soon after moved out to Surrey, BC where they started their family and lived in the Clayton Hill area. As a war vet, Dad became a member of the Cloverdale Legion, Branch #6 and was a member for 61 years. His sense of humour and wit knew no bounds, making many friends.

John worked for CNR, Fraser Mills Sawmill in New Westminster and William Clark & Sons Ford in Cloverdale. He had a successful career as a car sales man and was recognized by Ford Canada on several occasions. After 23 years of selling cars and managing at the dealership, Dad retired and in 1982 John and Grace moved to Kamloops. They enjoyed their life together raising their four children and watching them start families of their own. The six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren held a very special place in his heart. Family camping and fishing trips were part of Dad`s life well into his 70`s. Dad and Mom enjoyed many years as snowbirds heading to Arizona. Dad loved Arizona and he and Mom met many long time friends, who they would play cards with and traveled extensively.

Dad suffered from glaucoma for several years before it took his sight in 1997 and Mom had been his eyes and guide ever since. She was a devoted companion to her husband and best friend. He is predeceased by his parents Eric and Edith Hoglund, brothers Ronnie Hoglund, Bill Larson and granddaughter Lisa Hoglund.

John is survived by wife Grace of 71 years, children Dwight (Linda) Hoglund, Eric (Judy) Hoglund, Brenda (nee Hoglund) French, Dairel (Jody) Hoglund, sisters Audrey Harburn, Dorothy (Bill) Griffin, five grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
