Merry Christmas. I spent Christmas in Camp Borden 69 years ago. On December 21st, 1953 I was on a train from Vancouver to Borden. I was 17 years old at the time and was in the class of 34. I may be the lone survivor of that time as I have not seen any names pop up on this web site. Mel has a photo of me and also of me and another two on a motorcycle display for a photo op. Still doing well at the age of 89. Blessings to all.

Hello to all and to all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and healthy New Year. It's always good to see a few old familiar names, with life attached to them of course, still hanging around. I also get a bit emotional when I read or hear about the friends from the Corps who have passed on . These were good friends and good days for sure . I am living in Gananoque, Ontario and still enjoying excellent health for which I am truly thankful, and hopefully Saint Peter doesn't have me on his most wanted list yet. Take care all and best regards.

Wishing all members a Merry Christmas, a Joyous Holiday Season, and a New Year Filled with Peace and Happiness. Conversed with Greg Stevens who resides in New Brunswick and learned that he suffered from a stroke on 1 Nov 22. Greg was transported to a Hospital in St John and allowed to return home twenty-one days later. Greg is doing well. I recently spoke to Stan Draus who resides in Alberta and he is having his problems with severe arthritis. Both members are in great spirits.

Sadly; I was just advised by our Provost colleague, Wally Hansen, that former member of the Corps, retired MWO Johnny (J C ) DIONNE, had passed away in PEI a few days ago. As I am currently out of the Country for the next 3 weeks I do not have access to our Association Master E-Mail list to forward this information out to our membership at large. When I arrive back in Canada I'll forward the obituary out to our membership ASAP. In the meantime; I request that those who view this entry forward it to your former Corps and Military Police colleagues. May he rest in peace!

Hello all. Does anybody know where I could go to find out more information on my great grandfather? He passed away in the year of 2000, and I was always aware of the fact that he served during WW2. Well, I found an old cut out obituary of his, and it says that he served in the Canadian Provost corps from 1939-1945. I did not realize this until just today, as I always assumed he was just a regular soldier.

Served in Germany with both Jimmy (Kidd) and Pete (Zwaagstra). Both good guys. I'm sorry to read of their passing. Pete and I took a dog I bought from the German Police to his Aunt and Uncles farm in Tjerkwerd several times to get him inoculated and Health papers from the local Veterinary and the County Veterinary to bring him back to Canada without quarantine. A couple bottles of CC did the trick.

As a retired member of the CproC. this is my first submission on this site. I have monitored this site for several years. A lot of members are familiar to me. What I would like to see more members expressing their views on current affairs, their ideas and opinions. Can we not use this site as a CProC chat site. Mel who runs the site has the final word. Good to make an announcement who passed away but lets not make this only an obituary site. We are all retired, lots of time on hand lets express our thoughts on current issues and ideas. This site would be more active. It does not have to be a Facebook but a fellowship expession site.

Hi Mel
It's been awhile since I visited the site to say hello. The reason being, about three years ago I crushed fractured my spine in the area of the 4th and 5th vertabrae and while they were treating mee for that they found I had a rare blood cancer and are now treating that. I don't see well any more because of the medications etc although strangely enough I have 20/20 vision. There is no cure for my cancer, so I just have to keep fighting it.I just wanted all my old friends and working buddies to know I haven't forgotten any of you. Because of my eyesight I am notnot proficient on the computer or phone any more as the meds make my eyes blurry. Anyway hi to all and have a good fall. Best Wishes to all.

My name is Brian Holmes, and I served in the Provost Corps from 1968 to 1975, and left as a Cpl from 1 MP Pl in Calgary to join the Calgary Police. I was made aware of the site recently and noticed posts from a number of people I worked with back in the day, or at least crossed paths with. Hello to all, and I hope you are staying safe and well. I’m looking for an old friend, who was also a corporal in 1 MP Pl back in Calgary in 1975. I heard that he was posted down east somewhere, but I got lazy and lost track of him. His name is Gord PFLUG. He was born in Dinsmore Sask, and he was about the same age as me, so he is now somewhere around 70 (plus or minus a few years). If anyone can help, please contact me at or at 403-280-1966).

John joined the Provost Corps in 1949 or 50 and apart from a posting to the Black Watch in Aldershot NS, spent most of his time in the west. Some of his postings were in Churchill Manitoba, Thunder Bay, SIU Sections and in Egypt where he was by boss.

The answer to your query is "No", #44 Provost Company did not go overseas. There is a list of all C Pro C Provost Companies that were dispatched overseas included in the Book "Watchdog" A History Of The Canadian Provost Corps by the late Colonel Andrew Ritchie. No. 44 Provost Company is not incluided among that list but is listed under the "Home War Establishment Provost Companies". By the way, the Offficer Commanding this Company during WWII was Maj RFC ALLEN.

He will be missed by many. He was a member of the Canadian Provost Corps and Military Police since 1952 til he retired as the SIU CWO. For the past few years he and Carole had been living with his daughter in Medicine Hat Alberta. Rest in Peace my friend til we meet again

Hi Larry.. Thank you for responding to my little look at the past. Like you, I did't like the Blue jobs ideas of doing things. or did I appreciate being always under the commad of an Air Force Officer, but we did as we always did. Show "Discipline By Example" and went on with our jobs. I remember you at 2 Pro Pl as well but I think you were in another section or that I wasn't there that long before going to the Base Detachment. Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying life in your retirement.

Hi Mel and all the other lads out there who might remember me. Just dropped in to say hello to all and to see if my picture was still in it's place of honour on the Profile page. Which it is :). Love being able to open the page and see myself as a much younger man, full of pride of being a member of the Canadian Provost Corps , now growing old but still living with great memories of my time spent with the Corps and how sad I was in 1968 when the Corps was done away with and replaced with the Military Police. I wonder how many members felt like me at the time ? No matter, it;s been done and like all good soldiers, we soldiered on under the Military Police banner until retirement. But they can't take our memories away from and I have nothing but good memories of the Provost Corps and the different places I served as a proud Provost. Cheers to all of you I met and worked with during this period of my life. I may forget you for a litttle while, but throughout time, a word or phrase crops up that brings back memories of each one of you, even though I may at times have to think a bit harder to recall where and when we met. Have a great rest of the summer and Mel , take care and keep up the great job you are doing with this site.

Hi Ron. Leo Bernard is doing fine. He and Carole live in Medicine Hat with their daughter JoAnne McTaggart. He has had some health issues over the years, several strokes but is OK. He would be 88 or 89 now so it's nice to still have him with us. JoAnne is on FB and is a member of the Thunderbird Club so any messages to Leo can be relayed thru her.

In response to the entry made by one of my former supervisors, Walt (Rocky) Lane, one whom I very well remember as he guided, (then a young Lance Cpl (Up) on a successful career path) and I'm sure there were times when he doubted that we could make the grade. Well some of us did " Wally" and it would not have been possible without people of your quality guiding us early in our respective careers. I always said my success was attributable to being trained by the very best that the Canadian Provost Corps had. For that I thank you! Hope to see you at a future "Muster" when things return to normal again.Take care old friend.

Robert Ernest Long January 21, 1933 - September 5, 2019 Bob came from the east where the sun rises. In Toronto, the day before he boarded the train to Calgary, he had been told by the military brass that he would be sent to Halifax. Thus started his military career. He married Shirley Sandulak in Drumheller, and he always pretended that, since that day, he had come to Drumheller once a year on their anniversary, to throw a stone at the church. The honeymoon was barely over, when he was sent to Korea as a member of the Canadian Military Provost Corps. He used to say, "When I left Vancouver in 1953, it was overcast and rainy. When I came back three years later, it was still overcast and rainy. Not a place to my liking". On his way back from Korea, the military ship was called into Japan for awhile, and fifty years after, Bob was still able to start a conversation with Japanese girls by asking them in their own language "Where are the toilets please?". And then Susie was born in Calgary, and so was Debra. At this point the military decided Bob had done his share of populating Alberta, and sent him to Dawson Creek, BC. Bob found it much to quiet here, and Roberta was born at a clinic in nearby Pouce Coupe. From Dawson Creek, Bob was patrolling the Alaska highway, keeping an eye on American military convoys heading to the 49th United State. Then the family went back to Ontario, to Camp Borden, where Bob was an instructor for the young Provost Corps recruits, giving them, like he used to put it "Super High Intensity Training". Then little Shirley was born in Barrie, and the family moved to Hemer, Germany. When he had a break from chasing the wrongdoers, Bob would take his family all around Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. He loved to explore, and take pictures. Many times, forgetting about his family screaming at him from the inside of the little Volkswagon, he was taking his time, just to get the perfect shot. He liked to say, "My dad was Russian, my mom was Russian, but I jus

I was a member of 5 Provost Company (Militia) in Halifax in the early 60s and later wore the cap badge of the Provost Corps with 2 MP Pl in Petawawa and CFE Europe Baden Det. When we rebadged to the Thunderbird I traded my Provost cap badge for a French Gendarme's pill box cap which I later donated to the Canadian Police College. I have been unable to find a badge on the web and was wondering if any of the members would have such a badge for sale.

Hi all: My uncle is Charles Douglas, who lives here in Calgary. I'm sorry I don't remember his rank title, but he was in charge at Camp Borden in the 70's. I remember visiting him there in 1976 on a across Canada trip to the east coast.Is there anyone out there that remembers him? I would love to pass on some messages or phone #'s. He's coming up to his 93rd birthday in June. He always has great stories to convey and his wife, Ella, will be turning 100 yrs old on July 1st. I just like spreading a few good things in their lives as they are like my 2nd set of parents. They would be thrilled to hear from any of you. Thanks very much.

Hello to all. Joined the Provost Corps in 1953. I was the youngest recruit in the Corps at the age of 17. Trained in Camp Borden, and was in the Class of 34. I was too young to go into action at that time so was sent to Germany at the age of 18. Spent two plus years there and had a great time. Posted to Soest and Hemer, Finally to Chilliwack BC. Received my Group 1, 2, 3, Service Police Trades as a Lance Corporal. Beat out all of those big fat sergeants who said I could not do it. I guess they where not aware that I was on the Canadian Provost Judo Team. I am 81 years old now. Am a animal lover and believe that a " A Provost Must Have A Horse". Hi To All.
