My career in the Canadian Armed Forces took me to many areas of supply, from working in a clothing depot in 26 Central Ordnance Depot (26 COD) in Cobourg, Ontario, to 2nd Canadian Infantry Brigade Group in Petawawa where I worked in 2 Ordnance Field Park (2OFP) maintaining spare parts for a brigade. While in Camp Petawawa, i did a summer tour in 1966 in Thule, Greenland. This was for Operation Boxtop, which was to re-supply Canadian Forces Station Alert at the top of Ellesmere Island, which is about 1000 miles from the North Pole. Then in summer of 1967 on to Germany where I served 4 years as a supply technician for 4 MP Platoon (4 Military Police Platoon) in Fort Henry, Soest, Germany.
