The Silent Sentinels of “Depot” – Part II

Three years ago, I wrote of about the “Silent Sentinels of Depot” (see universally known in RCMP speak as the “flagpole”. It was known that the flagpole that stood from 1943 to sometime in the 1980s was raised by the members of “P” Troop 1943. At the time of writing my story I could not find any photos of that flagpole being raised. All the details of the pole itself, where it came from, are buried in a long-ago archived file. Who were the members of “P” Troop? Long lost to Force history. Until…. September 2023. We now have the name of one of the members of “P” Troop 1943 and photographs.
