history_photo.gif“In 1984 I was the Director of Administration at the Royal Military College of Canada. My RMC Number is S103. I think that history was made on 13 August 2007 when three members of the RMC Class of 1984 gathered in 2 CMBG for a Change of Command Parade. The Reviewing Officer was 14274 Brigadier-General Alan Howard (in the centre of the picture); the outgoing commander was 14378 Colonel Denis Thompson (on the left in the picture) and the incoming commander was 14596 Colonel Dean Milner(on the right in the picture). I say history because all three were from the RMC Class of 1984. I could be wrong. I thought this may be of interest in your newsletter. Thanks very much.”
