|Garrison Provost Patrol Vehicles|
Kingston Provost Detachment - 1965. Lance Corporal Fred Herman, on mobile patrol. Note the siren on the right
fender and the small red light on the roof of the sedan.
The Volkswagon Beetle Patrol Vehicle was first utilized as a patrol vehicle by the C Pro C of 4 Provost Platoon in Germany
in 1963 where it became a novelty throughout the Canadian military community, equipped with the emergency blue light and
claxton siren. It was also a bit of a challenge for most of the present day members of the C Pro C to access and egress, bearing
in mind, most members of the C Pro C in the post WWII era were 5'10" or taller.
