Rest in Peace Col. James Duncan                             RCASC

I first met the then Major Duncan on arrival at 1 Tpt Coy RCASC in Ft Chambly Germany 1963. He was CO of the Company.

As a young private I had very little interaction with the CO. Except for one major event. In 1965 I wished to marry in Scotland but need the CO’s permission/blessing. This I obtained after a personal chat with the Major.

Over the years I heard of him and his actions. NARY a bad word about this Officer and a Gentleman., but the following links have pictures and stories of his involvement with the Korean Veterans of Canada.

I feel that I may this for all who attended RV16 last August, it was indeed a Proud moment in all of our lives to meet Col Duncan once again and Honoured the he took the Final Salute of RCASC Veterans that Sunday Morning last August. I even speak for Jim Dawson 23 Pl who feels he held the record of Order’s Parades under Major Duncan.
