Black Watch and RCR Friends:

Regret to report the passing of Hugh Pullen last week in Halifax.

Hugh was posted to First Battalion, Black Watch RHC from the R22eR in 1962 and was appointed ‘A’ Company Commander. Following his tour with 1RHC, he attended Canadian Army Staff College (1966/67) and was then posted to the UK as an exchange officer at the Royal School of Infantry. In 1969 he was posted to CF Training Command in Winnipeg and at some time thereafter he re-badged RCR. After his retirement from the CF in 1980, he served briefly at Atlantic Region HQ in Halifax.

PULLEN, Major Hugh F. H., CD (Ret.)

Went gently into that good night at Halifax Infirmary, QEII September 6th 2016, from complications following a stroke on August 4th. Born in 1934, Hugh was the eldest child of Rear Admiral Hugh Pullen and Helen Pullen.

Left to grieve a loving husband and father are his wife, Gillian (Jill Wickwire); children, Nicholas, California; Lucy (Tom Butter), New York; Nick's three children, Tommy, Isabel and Harry. Hugh's remaining siblings include, Tinker (John) Mackay, Sarah (Brian, deceased) McLoughlin, Margo Pullen Sly, Dr. Frances Gregor (Dr. Ronald), Helen (Richard) Cathcart and William (Julia) Pullen.
Hugh attended secondary schools across Canada and graduated from the Royal Military College of Canada, Class of 1956 (Cadet No. 3648), with a degree in History. He was commissioned as an infantry officer in the Canadian Armed Forces and served in the Royal 22nd Regiment, the Black Watch and the Royal Canadian Regiment. His military career included paratroop training and an exchange posting to the British Army School of Infantry in 1968, followed by studies at the British Army Staff College at Camberley. Hugh saw active service with the UN Multinational Force and Observers Peacekeeping Mission in Egypt.

Hugh retired in 1980 and became the Administrator for the Law Courts Commission and developed an interest in municipal affairs. He served as President of the Peninsula South Community Association and represented community interests trying to find a balance between heritage and development. Gentle and accepting, Hugh met the pains of ageing with contentment and stoicism. An interest in military history sustained him. Never one to complain, he rose to every occasion with good humour and a wit that never ceased to amaze. A word of thanks and gratitude to the Nursing Staff on Unit 7.4 at Halifax Infirmary, QEII and the therapeutic assistants who were at Hugh's side for weeks. Capital Health teams of professional, caring people eased his passage, and for this we are very grateful. There is no visitation. A celebration of Hugh's life will take place in Halifax at the Cathedral Church of All Saints on Wednesday, September 14th at 11 a.m. followed by a reception in the Great Hall. Instead of flowers, if you wish to make a memorial gift in Hugh's name, please consider The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia, The Alzheimer Sociéty of Nova Scotia or the charity of your choice.

With thanks to Craig Cameron, RF MacDonald and Dave Ells for the foregoing,

R. I. P.
