Comments:
In the middle of October 1956 a group of guys arrived at Shilo Manitoba. We were called 50 Class (and we thought we were the best). It has just occurred to me that we are coming up to 50 years that 50 Class was put together. ( I said we thought we were the best, I didn't say that I was the sharpest knife in the drawer). What an opportunity (and excuse)this would have been for a reunion. Our NCO's were Sgt Jock Fleming and Cpl MacKenzie. I am going to try and remember alphabetically that group of guys. Jim Allen Dunnville (deaceased) Vern Arndt Regina, Sask, (seen you here) Frank Dennis, Peterborough, ON, Biff Dimick Fredricton, NB, Joe Howlett, Guelph, ON, Don Holden, Dryden, ON (seen you here), Art Karpus, Toronto, ON, George Kirkpatrick, Montreal, PG, Doug Lennox, Sudbury, ON, Bill MacLeod, Vancouver, BC, Bob Mroz, Winnipeg, MB, Rod Stewart, Ottawa, ON, Al Woytowich, Sask. I think we started out with more than this but I think this was all of us at Pass Out. I'm really sorry if I missed anyone, but like you guys my old brain does not remember everything I want it to. I have no idea where all you guys are now, but wish someone had thought of a reunion. I'd like to hear from any of you and anyone else that remebers me, at flc@porchlight.ca especially if you know anything about some of the others. If someone has a class picture, maybe you can post it here. By the way, this is a great site.

Web Master's Rebuttal:
The foregoing comments by my mentor, Mr Elliott, have a ringing similarity to what I heard at my first Branch CWO's Conference in 1996. Junior CWOs' are only expected to listen at this level. Furthermore; the senior CWOs had a habit of leaving some Junior CWO's behind after dinner, (initiation night), making them walk back to the mess. Boy! Do I remember, as it was cold as hell outside. Camaraderie Amongst Provost!

Back again . So soon you may ask ? Well it seems I mixed my release date with my enlistment date. Correct release date is June 1969. I guess that's part of the process of aging, you know how you sometimes think how wonderful it would be if you could only roll back time a few years. Well, I tried but it didn't work. Others knew better. Take care and best of health to everyone.

While two finger typing this message, I realize there was a benefit to typing those Daily Occurrence Book pages, and no carbon paper to put in backwards.

I am presently undertaking a research project pertaining to the history of Military Policing in Canada, on behalf of the CF Provost Marshal. The project has as its aim, the goal of identifying when the first formed Military Police capability was established in Canada. I am looking for any information (links, books, articles, archives, orders, etc) that may exist, relative to the standup of the Canadian Military Police Corps (circa 1916), or any other earlier Canadian MP organization. I will be assisted in my research by Chief Warrant Officer Colin Lyon (currently serving as the CF National Investigation Service CWO).

Just wanted to thank all those who stayed in touch with my Dad, Edgar (Pat,Ed) Patterson. In going through his things I came across a note which summed up his feelings about his time in the C Pro C: I read somewhere that no man is poor who has friends. No man who ever served in the Canadian Provost Corps will ever, in my opinion, be poor, as long as there are two men left standing who's hat badge had a double crown. Thanks Mel, for your hard work with this wonderful site and making my Dad feel so welcome!

I'm somewhat embarrassed to say that I didn't know this site existed until it was forwarded to me and I saw with pride that my father, my Dad- Frank Weir - was featured as a profile. I'm not sure that we live in a world anymore where so many men of such pride and honour still exist. On behalf of all service brats, I'd like to thank you all for your service and committment to your country and families. God bless you all! We will not forget.

Greetings to all and the very best of everything for 2008 and now a request for a bit of information (Help ?) In 1967 I served a six month tour of duty in Cyprus......as did a lot of others. Mine was not with the UN Force , but on secondment to the Dept of External Affairs at The Canadian High Commission in Nicosia which was there in support of the Canadian Contingent and I believe only while our Contingent was there. I stand to be corrected on that by anyone who may have better information. My Question is: Was there ever a Medal/Ribbon/Recognition or anything else awarded to those of who served in that capacity. I served there with A/Sgt Tom Spence and Lcpl Walter Snagleweski, I believe Tom has passed to the great DB in the sky. We relieved Tony Cannons, et al. Tony are you up to scratch on this? Thanks to anyone and all who may abe able to help on this. Regards!

I joined the Provost Corps on a leave of absence from the Toronto Police Department in May 1951 and returned to the Toronto Police Department upon my release in December 1954. This is the first I have seen of this site. I enjoyed looking at the photographs of many old friends and comrades. It brought back many memories. Thanks for putting it together.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20080822.OBTREVIS22//TPStory/Obituaries Greetings all. Hope the summer is treating you all well. The site above speaks of the passing of Robert (Bob) Thomas Trevis, 90. From the writing he was obviously a well known and highly respected person within the Canadian golfing community. He was also a WWII Veteran who served with both the RCRs and Provost Corps during the war. RCR, CProC and Golf; what else could one ask for in life Take good care!

Hi! Following my basic training at the Quebec Citadelle and CFB Valcartier in late 1960 and early 1961, I attended the recruit training course at the C Pro C School in Borden. I was then posted to 2 MP PL in December 1961. I stayed with 2 MP PL until I was discharged at the end of January 1964. At the beginning of February 1964, I became a member of the Ontario Provincial Police and was posted at the Pembroke detachment. I retired from the OPP in June 1994. Tonight, I accidently came upon this Canadian Provost Corps website and saw the names of many persons that I have met during my time as a military policeman. I brought back many good memories. You have an excellent website. I found it very interesting and informative. I would just like to say hello to some of my old collegues from the olden days. Take care and be safe!

Andy
