Photos were added from Arne Knudson's time in Shilo MB after transferring from the 15th (Vancouver) Coast Brigade to the 7th Anti-Tank Regiment. Check them out here.
There's no date on the following photos but they are all in the same series and feature Lieutenant Colonel Bill Wickett as Commanding Officer and Colonel Stein as Director Artillery displaying the fancy, shiny new HP 81C. Did I get the date right? Check out the other photos from Ft Lewis here.
Prince Rupert Barrett Battery
This coastal gun emplacement has recently been in the news regarding some planned future infrastructure works that might damage the existing fortifications. It would be a shame for the region to lose an historic heritage site without examining the potential revenue generating options if the site was properly set up. Our Museum & Archives have some photos of the fort being established in the 1940s. Check them out here.
More photos from Edward (Ted) Edmonds appear to show training in the local area. No dates are specified but it appears to be prior to Ted being commissioned. I've placed them in 1928 until such time as additional information is found.
Added some additional slides to the 1972 recruiting presentation. Check them out here.
With one Battery tasked to fire the salute, the remainder of the Regiment marches in the parade at Victory Square. Familiar faces in the ranks: Gunners Leo Kung, Leon Jensen, Craig Stewart, Bill Barlow, Greg James; Bombardiers Dave Strebe, Keith Laing, Mike Meehan; Second Lieutenant Art Gee, Lieutenants Bob Mugford, Gary Woloski, Martin Casey; Captains Stuart McDonald, Steve Burridge; Majors Bill Wickett, Vic Stevenson, Ian Whitelaw and Lieutenant-Colonel Barrie Clemons. Check out the other photo in the 1971 Yearbook.
Not much information on the following series of photos. We know that it's 1956 due to the licence plate in one photo and we've grouped all the photos together as there are common faces throughput. Do you recognize anyone? Any idea where No 1 Fire Rally Point might be located? Check out the other pictures here.
