PMC’s Cameron Club Report:



  1. Elections this year: See the column on the left for the “winners”.




  1. 100th Anniversary Weekend: 22- 24 Oct 2010
    The Association and ourselves were tasked to ramrod the Friday evening part of the event. It was a GREAT evening and pictures can be seen on the Cameron Picasaweb site.




  1. WO’s & Sgt’s Robbie Burn’s Night: 22 Jan 2011: Was held at the Wpg Convention Center because we got a deal on it. Another great night !




  1. New Member: Sgt Nenad Mladjenovic, from the highlands of Central Europe by way of the A&SH of C.
    Welcome to the Club Nenad !




  1. Sgt Tim Seeley: Apparently is very handy with the CDS’s coffee, and our former RSS Capt and “birkie bangster” in general Paul McIntyre must have been stick handling the toast. They’ve both been awarded a CDS Commendation:

From the Editor’s Desk:
This is issue #10. I have again heard back from several of you as usual and thank you for your support and suggestions.
Boy has it been a long haul to get this issue done ! Sorry for the delay folks but after the 100th there was still a lot of other things on the go. The plaque for Valour Road is but one thing that comes to mind. More on that later.
This issue naturally focuses on the Cameron 100th Anniversary. I hope that all of you are tried your best to come – and to drag someone from your personal “Glory Days” with you.
If you didn’t make it there are quite a few pictures posted on the Cameron Picasaweb site (and still more to come) so that you can play spot the old guy:

We also have an event that has returned in style from the Supplementary Order of Extracurricular Fun:

The Cameron Highland Games !

Run last year on the 05 June weekend at WO Bruce Breustedt’s place it was a great hit even if no pipers made it. This year promises to be even better.

Cheers for now,


CWO Hugh O’Donnell

Regimental NCO Plot

Sgt James Clark is soldiering on as a Platoon 2 i/c of a PL of the Wpg Infantry Tactical Group. The courses are going well and a WO’s crown may be in his future.
Sgt Matt Lumsden is keeping the streets safe with the Wpg Police Svc. Matt was THE Colour Party NCO and Sentinel Party Comd for the 100th because of his 2 tours with the Canada Remembers program.
Sgt Nenad Mladjenovic is working with the Pipes & Drums these days.
Sgt Maciej Witkowski is on Class “B” doing something productive as CQMS with 17Fd Amb no doubt. He may yet be seen regularly in Unit lines in the future.
Sgt William Worden is still heavily engaged on the Home Front. 9‘er Domestic overrules 9’er Tak, and with 2 young ones he’s been tasked for Home Front duties. He is still with the RQ shop.

Sgt Tim Seeley is still working overseas. It’s a really hot and bagpipe deprived area he’s in so he’s bring a little Cameron culture as best he can to the locals. Haggis for one main menu item !


Sgt John Dawson is home and made it out to the Limo Night. He is still not used to civilized company and prefers texting to talking to Camerons by a far margin.
Sgt Dave Gibson is now with the 4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group. Funny, when Dave first started with us he was working up north too.
WO Bruce Breustedt is in fact working with Area Standards.
P/M Ian Ferguson is now a Cameron but is no stranger to us, or than us for that matter !
He was the CF P/M for some years and did a great job as our P/M for the 100th.
The Cameron P&D may never be the same....

MWO Lloyd Harris is busy with special tasks for the CO.



CWO Hugh O’Donnell is now Extra Regimentally Employed at Domestic Operations which is part of Joint Task Force West. He has his rubber boots packed for the upcoming “High Water Event”.
Pipes & Drums Page
The P&D are sounding very good these days and put on an excellent show for the August Cameron Reunion. The new P/M, Ian Ferguson was held to blame for all those free drinks the P&D had to quaff after such fine music but before they were allowed to go home.
Great work Pipie !
The Pipes and Drums also did an outstanding job at the Cameron 100th judging by the applause at every event they played at. Of special note was the superb duet version of “The Sands of Kuwait” at the Saturday night dinner with the Band of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles.
