Bob is a retired Canadian Forces Veteran.  As a long-standing member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Bob dedicates himself to supporting veterans; particularly those of the Canadian Provost Corps.  He is a Charter member of the Canadian Associations of Veterans in the United Nations Peacekeeping and former Vice-president and Secretary of the Canadian Provost Corps Association.  In December of 2017, Bob received The Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers for his exceptional volunteer achievements.

Bob will have on display a Canadian Army 1956 Triumph Motorcycle. The motorcycle has had a long and celebrated history among military forces around the world.  They were used for traffic control, delivering dispatches, and for escort and general patrol.  Through rough terrain, foreign nations, enemy fire, rain, sleet, snow and blazing sun our military riders and their bikes endured.  And like most motorcycle enthusiasts, these military riders shared a special bond with their machines and almost always had a tale to tell.  He will also cover the proud history of the Canadian Military Police Branch.
