It is a small world. Several days ago I was dumping some garbage at our local landfill in Morinville, when I saw a guy looking at the front of my truck. He the asked me if I had been in the Provost Corps as he had seen my C Pro C licence plate. Discovered that he was Howard Henderson the son of the late Ssgt Jim "Puff Puff" Henderson and he was living in the local area. I last served with Jim Henderson at CFB Baden in 1970. Jim had been one of the first Provost to be posted to the Base. I will invite Howard to our next MP gathering.

He fought a courageous battle with cancer. There is no formal service planned by the family at Eds request. He leaves his loving wife Jean Anne, his son Edwin and son Rick. He was a credit to our country, the uniform he wore and to the Military Police Branch where he served with distinction. I and his many friends will miss him greatly.

Hello and I am writing from Calgary AB............I found this picture on your website under Prairie Command Provost Company – 1958 while searching for relative Alan James McDonald, (aka AJ or Mac) could you please tell me if there is any way or anyone I could contact in regard to going about how to find him if he is still alive. Or if this could even be passed on to him by someone who may still be in contact with him. He was married to a lady by the name of Ruth although later divorced, and they had 2 children, Ian and Marilyn. I believe he lives or did live in the Winnipeg area. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

Happy New Year to all Provosts. I had many friends and mentors during my Service. Most are gone now. My time was from 1953 to 1960. That was a long time ago, so now starting my 80th year on this amazing planet, of which I call home, I can only dream of my past and my comrades. I was of course in Borden, Shilo, and rode an old Harley Motorcycle to New Brunswick to open up a new Camp. Can you guess the name. Later went to Germany and spent two plus years there. Returned and served at the Chilliwack Provost Detachment with the Corps of Engineers. It is all gone now. Except for the memories. Best wishes to those of you who still remember.

Hi, I was checking the website and saw the photo of the 2 Provost Platoon on parade at Petawawa in 1962. It's too bad that there are only two names mentioned. I was a member of 2 Provost Platoon in 1962. I remember some of the other names like...Sgt Fournier, Hendrix, Robichaud, Jenkins, Thomas, Athans, Baskerville, Midgley, Henderson, Thistlewaite, Howart, Newstead, Jodoin, Boucher. Those names come to mind right now.I wonder where they might be now. It was nice thinking about the olden days. This is a great website. Take care one and all. I left the Army at the end of January 1964 and joined the O.P.P. on 03 Feb. 1964. I retired from the O.P.P. at the end of June 1994. Sgt. F. Barton was my platoon Sgt. at the C-Pro-C School in Borden in 1961-62 or so.

Attended the re-dedication ceremony of the Canadian Provost Corps Cairn at the Canadian Forces Military Police Academy in Borden on 6 November 2015. The Ceremony was very well done. I was given the Honor of laying the Wreath on behalf of the Canadian Army. Met a number of old Veterans and also a number of new Military Police Members. I want to say that our proud traditions were aptly recognized and are in the good hands of those young Military Policemen and Policewomen that will carry on those traditions. For those who are interested I am told that photographs will be posted on the MP Academy Web. Also I have posted photographs of the Cairn on my Facebook Page. Discipline By Example is still a fashionable Motto and trait.

I served at Camp Borden as the RMP Exchange Officer from 1967 to 1969 - two thoroughly enjoyable and professionally rewarding years. This entry is primarily to thank any of those reading this who served with me at CFSIS for making me so welcome at a time when the challenges of unification made life 'testing', especially the 'Old Brigade'., proud of the C Pro C's actions in WW2 and later, Korea. Many names now escape me, but I spent a happy summer (poison ivy excepted) working with Sgt Joe Beer, running all the field training for the annual ROTP (?) muster; I believe he died some years ago - but could be wrong. Doug Martin was the OC, Howard Mansfield, who died earlier this year, his 2i/c. School Commandant at the time was Lt Col Bob Luker, with WO1 May BEM CD, his RSM. Happy Days ! I returned to Canada in 1992 and visited Borden, bringing back so many good memories, then on to Ottawa, where my ex-CFIS friends gave me a great time, rolling back the years. My best wishes to all of you.

I have always corresponded with him at Xmas with a card and a short letter but this is the first for him by email. He was using his grand-daughter's laptop but it was a far cry from his old typewriter that he has had forever. He is well and passes on his regards to anyone who served at Hemer or in the many schemes, Sennelager and Saultau where he was one of the interpreters.

Just thinking back to the year 1954 Camp Borden Class of 34 Basic Training. We moved on to Shilo to complete the training. Back to Borden onto some motor cycle training then on to New Brunswick all the way on motorcycle. The old Harleys. We camped in tents and stayed in New Brunswick for a couple of months, and then on to Germany. Most of my old partners are gone. I am still here. I have not had contact with any of my old friends. But, I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and God Bless all that served in the Canadian Armed Forces. Regards to all,

May 1956 joined City Of London Police and continued my CPROC training until 1965. Militia training very useful during early years in Municipal policing.I 'm still in touch with several members from my Militia days.

I recently stepped down as an Aide de Campe to the Lt. Gov. of New Brunswick after 16 plus years and 3 Lt. Governors. At that time I wondered how I was going to represent my military career at various tasks since 1965. Well after thinking about what task meant the most to me over all those years. I came to the conclusion the Canadian Provost Corps was the one which got me started and continues to be an influence on the tasks I do to this day. I realized I had made the right decision on 11 Nov. 2013 when I attended the Remembrance Day Event in the Village Dorchester, NB , dressed in the kit as follows: beret w/ C Pro C great embroidered Hat badge, blue blazer w/medals, white shirt, Corps Tie, grey slacks, black spit-shined shoes and black socks. I think I would have passed inspection by any of these guys Sgt Hart, Sgt Curry, Sgt Elliot or Sergeant-Major May. (Anyone remember them ha ha). Upon entry I was asked to read the names of the fallen during the ceremonies while waiting for things to start a number of military retirees and young former members working in other para-military organizations addressed me, commenting about me being "with those guys" and that hat badge was the only one of it's type in the crowd of about 150. By their comments, looks and getting me involved so quickly they make me feel like I did in 1965 when I was presented with the red lanyard. That day, time and feeling can never be bought and George Jones nor Jack Daniels can make it better than that. Because of what I just described I am looking forward to the 2014 Reunion with much more interest than I did 4 months ago. Life is good. Thanks to all who can relate to this scenario or even my have involved some where along the line.

Hi Vic. All of us former C Pro C, would like to stay in touch. You did not give much information about your time served or where you were trained or posted. I myself was in Class #34 at Borden for Basic Training. Long time ago. That was in 1953, and later in Shilo. I was one of the very few PFC's to get a Group 111 Trade Badge. Most who got the Group 111, were Sergeants and up. My last Post was with the School Of Engineers in Chilliwack . Nice that you made a post on this web site. If you scroll through, you may see me mentioned on a motorcycle display photo op at Shilo. Most of my compadres are gone now but the memories are still there. Best to you,

Hi Macx:
It is strange that I do not remember you. In 1966 three of us from 1 Provost Platoon, Sarcee Barracks, Calgary, Alberta were sentence to Valcartier. We all were Canadians and did not speak French. In 1967 I volunteered for UN duties in Cyprus and after 6 months was returned to Valcartier. I later, 1969 went to NATO in Germany where both my sons were born. I got lucky and got to go back to CFB Borden in 1972. In 1974 I joined the Ontario Correctional Services where I served for 30 years. There are 2 sites I have had good luck with for military items, however I am not allowed to post URL's here. You may contact me at and I will provide you with the appropriate URLs for the 2 sites. Hope this is of assistance. Regards,

He served in Shilo, Camp Borden, CFB Chilliwack, Soest W. Germany and Kingston. 2 kids born in Brandon MB and 3 in Germany... we were totally military kids and forever connected to the C PRO C. My father was very proud of all of the medals he received as a result of the time he spent in the military. He also spent time in the UN peacekeeping missions in Cyprus and Egypt. Every day I am still able to look at the beautiful Egyptian ornaments he brought us from his tour in Egypt and in the last few years of his life he spent a lot of time talking about all the places he had travelled with the military. It was a great adventure he always remembered. Thank you for all of the photos and contributions to the memory of the C PRO C.

Member of C Pro C from 1953 to 1960. Basic at Borden, then Shilo, Number 1 Pro Company back to Borden. On to Germany 1955 to 1957. Soest, Iserlohn, Hemer. Posted to Chilliwack, under S/sgt Macwilliams. Got my Group 3 trades in Shilo around 1959. Also was on Provost Judo Team around 1954 and 1955 performed at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto, two years, with Gus Hendrikson, Tiny Burnet, Tommy Crooks, and several other great team mates whoes names I can't recall at this time. That was a long time ago. I joined the Provost Corps just as the Korean War was ending. I was too young at age seventeen to be sent into a theatre of war, so ended up going to Germany after basic at Borden and Shilo. I still have fond memories of my service with the Canadian Provost Corps and most of all with the fine men who mentored me at that time when I was so young. Most of the guys that I was with in those years gone by are gone now, but I have many memories of the good times and of course the bad times. But let's say those were remarkable times. Wonder if anyone remembers me. Cheers to all.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Canadian Provost Corps website...congratulations to those who manage it. This site is a wonderful educational medium showcasing both the history of the Canadian Provost Corps but Canadian history itself. I am currently conducting research for an upcoming book which features (but is not specifically about) a former member of the Canadian Provost Corps (RCMP) who joined the first group of 'recruits' in 1939. I would be grateful to receive information who may have known this person or of him. His name was James Douglas Finley Morrison and joined as a Private and left the Canadian Provost Corps after the war as a Captain. Any insights that I receive will be very helpful and most appreciated. He was born in Chatham, N.B., and returned to the RCMP following the war. He served the RCMP in Ottawa, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. I can be reached by e-mail at: . Thank you.

It has been in progress for awhile however caught up with him yesterday and this a.m. by 8:20 a.m. he was in a wheelchair at emger. The bottom line is he is in for 5 days, not sure that this includes today or starts tomorrow. He is on Stn 44 and if anyone wishes to visit, due to colds, etc don't rush as you could end up sick yourself, visiting hrs are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Hope everyone had a Merry festive season and enjoy the new year, hope its the start of bigger and better things to come.

I have recently re-established contact with CProC and as a mere 'meathead' was delighted to do so. I served in 1 Commonwealth Division Pro Coy, Korea from Feb 52 - Jul 53, which included 37 CProC soldiers of 25 Cdn Bde. The OC was Canadian, as were a second officer Capt/Lt and the CSM. It was the only unit in the division that lived in international harmony throughout their existance. We even had 17 Australian coppers. Best wishes to all 'survivors'.

Upon checking your page again, I noticed a message from Jim Rogers. I'm wondering if it's the same Jim Rogers that I serve with at the Gagetown Detachment back in the early 60's. If so "Hi Jim". I was a member of the Provost Corps for 7 and 1/2 years in the 60's and have always been proud of that fact. Some great memories and a few that wasn't so great.

I just read of the passing of my old friend Jerry Cullen. If my memory serves me correctly, Jerry worked with me at the old Chilliwack Detachment. That was between 1958 - 1960. He was a Corporal at that time, and had also served in Korea. Jerry had a very persuasive way of getting me to type up all of his investigation reports. He always paid me off at the Corplorals Mess (school of engineers) with a nice cold beer. Our boss was the Late and the Great Notorious Staff Sergeant MacWilliams, who also was a former instructor at the C Pro C School in Borden and Shilo. Jerry Cullen was one of the nicest and most respected companions I had ever worked with. Members of the School of Engineers in Chilliwack at that time had a lot of respect for him. He was quiet, friendly, and just did a damn good job. He is missed.

The following information concerning Derek Hunter Supplied by his wife Juanita as follows: "Derek is having some health issues for sure.He had a stroke on Dec 8th and was in hospital for 9 days. He lost use of his right side and was to get in a therapy programme in the New Year. Before therapy got started he took a fall on Jan 14 and fractured his collar bone and several ribs and has been in hospital since then. His name is on a list to move to the Rehababilitation Ward when there is a vacancy . Once he gets moved there it will take a couple of months to get him mobilized. He is more than anxious to get on the road to recovery. For the time being ,his cancer issue has been put on the back burner as they have stopped his drug for awhile. Derek doesn't mind you passing on info and he knows that he has many folk praying and supporting him. No n eed to elaborate....just make it short.I only ask that they save the well wishes until he is back home and on the computer. I don't have a lot of time as I go to the hospital daily.Also we need a new computer as this one is old and jams up when overloaded.
