Thanks. At my age losing old friends is to be expected; it doesn't make it easier; it's a reminder that my time is running out, too ... like everyone's.

Maj (retired) Walt Conrad, passed away a week ago. He served 1949-1969, including deployments to Korea and Cyprus. We met at Ottawa's Orpheus Musical Theatre Society in the early 2000s. He was a gentleman, and a delightfully fun man, all around.

BGen (Retd) Ovas Wagg, former Commanding Officer of the Calgary Highlanders and former Commander South Alberta Militia District and Prairie Militia Area has passed away. More details are available Ovas Wagg Obituary.
I remember him. He commanded Mil Area Prairie while I was RSSO at 26th Fd Regt. Things ran fairly well in those days.

Major George Swan, CD
My friend George Swan passed on 25 Feb 2022. George was a reservist who served with the Lorne Scots, 11th Field RCA (he was infantry) and the RHFC. George wasn't a dynamic or charismatic leader, he didn't make anyone tremble in their boots. In civilian life he was a teacher and his leadership reflected the same careful planning he displayed in that role. He achieved his objectives, the troops were fed and got everyone home safely. And he managed to do that without making anyone hate him. George retired from the military in the early nineties. He was diagnosed with Lewy-Body Dementia in 2010 and I watched as that damned disease stole his mobility and his health but never his dignity. For the last few years I visited him every month. We'd watch old war movies and trade stories about our time in the Militia. I'll miss him.

When was he in the HFofC?
