Ric Hall’s Photo Corner

Based on last week’s photo theme of “member’s children growing up surrounded by all the RCMP stuff,” Ric has received several email responses with photographs.

 

 

 

The uniform of the RCMP has been a very familiar component to a member’s family.  To the  family members, it seems their mountie parent worked all the time and it was unusual to see them in civilian clothing.

These family realized first hand the many sacrifices that came with being associated to the RCMP: numerous transfers to isolated Detachments; trying to fit in a new community and the countless hours their mountie parent was away.  Despite these sacrifices, they were proud of their mountie parent and made many friends amongst other RCMP families.  Therefore, it was not unusual to have family members wearing the Force uniform.  Some children would go on to following a career path in the Force.

If you have photograph(s) of children wearing Force uniforms and would like to have them included in a forthcoming photo corner webpage, please contact Ric at rshall69@shaw.ca. He will scan the images and return the original back to you.

The Photo Corner webpage is one of our most popular websites as it provides a historical snapshot of the development of the Force and the contributions made by members and their families.
