Response to I was at Fort Macleod
You were with 1 PPCLI at a very interesting time; when they became the first mechanized infantry battalion in the Canadian Army (at least according to the 1965 edition of 'The Patricia'). Also serving in your battalion was young Capt de Chastelain, the future CDS.
I for one would welcome seeing any photos you have from your time in, whether in Germany or not. Cold War soldiering is a very hot topic at the moment.
PS: The fort adjacent to Fort MacLeod was Fort Prince of Wales, the location of the resident RCHA regiment.
