Just Registered - bit of history 2 Years, 6 Months ago  
I have just found this website and registered. I signed up in London Ontario (1961) and completed my training at Camp Gagetown. Joined the 2nd Battalion and remained at Gagetown until 1962 when I was a member of the advance party that went to Ft St Louis to replace the 1st Battalion. I remained at Ft St Louis until I was discharged in 1963. I returned to the UK as this was my home country. It was sad to read about the the death of Ken Byron as I remember him as my CSM and the fact that he tried to persuade me to sign on for longer.

Hello

Unable to remember the squad that I trained with at Camp Gagetown (the old memory is not at best). I always remember that there was a lot of snow around and the route marches were long. I have posted some photographs on a website so possibly someone will recognise themselves.
This is the link:

Just checked my Service and Medical Record Book (still have it) and I signed up on 11 Jan 61 as Pte Recruit and was made Pte TBR on the 11 Jul 61. So was in training during this period. You may know which squad went through training during this period. I was made a Pte THR on 11 Jul 62 and the book was signed by Lt P Goldie. Did you look at my webpage and recognise any of the lads in the pictures?

Pte Recruit I understand, but what is Pte TBR and Pte THR?

If you could scan and upload your Service Book, that would be fantastic for amateur historians like me. Cold War service is very 'in' at the moment.

Cheers,
Dan.

No service book. No idea what the letters stand for.

Hello all.

Have been trying to remember the meanings of TBR and THR but unable to clarify . I have attached 2 pages from my Record Book as JPEGs. Hopefully you can open them.

If can think of anything else will inform.
