Weekly Meeting - Lt. Colonel Mungall - Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa

Thank you to Derek Finley for a job well done as Chair of today's meeting while President John is attending the Kiwanis District Convention in Miami and hopefully getting to soak up a bit of sun (what's that?). Lt. Colonel Richard Mungall spoke of the history of the Cameron Highlanders which have a long and proud history in Ottawa since 1860. The Camerons military regiment consists of members from all walks of life who work on a part-time basis. Lt. Colonel Mungall explained that the soldiers are very proud of their role in society and continue to carry out the traditions of the military. They are trained in the military laws and discipline as well as navigation, weapons handling, drill, first aid, fieldcraft and more.
