CAFC March at Palliser Square
August 23rd 1971
FMC Collection, McIvor001Recto 001a
The first function following the creation of the Honour Guard was the Fire Chief’s Convention of 1971. The conference was the catalyst for the Guard’s official formation, as the Chief of the time wanted a high profile ceremonial presence at the event. The Honour Guard was born! The initial march took in much of downtown, proceeding past Palliser Square shown here, on August 23rd 1971.
Members present here include: Andy Mitchell, Dave Porter, Don Lindbergh, Frank Silliker, Brian Freney, Dennis McIvor, Wayne Meilleur (piper) John McNeill, Captain Al Sanofsky.
