Westmount, Quebec – 10 August 2022: The “Colonel Trent Cup” is only given to the most deserving soldier who displayed the best attributes of physical robustness in the previous training year and who is considered to have set the standard for excellence in overall physical fitness. The Regiment’s Commanding Officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Shone, and the Regimental Sergeant-Major, Chief Warrant Officer Leroux, were pleased to announce at the Regiment’s battalion review parade held on 15 May 2022 that Master-Corporal Prince-Pugh had earned the Colonel Trent Cup for the 2021-22 training year for being deemed as the RMR’s fittest soldier. 

Named for Colonel Peter Trent who was one of the longest serving Honoraries in RMR history, and who devoted more than 14-years of selfless energy as both the Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel and then as the Honorary Colonel to helping the Regiment in every conceivable fashion. As a five-time Mayor of Westmount and a highly successful entrepreneur, he has always led by example and set the highest standard for leadership and integrity. Recognizing the crucial importance of physical fitness to an Infantry unit, he requested that this award be created upon his retirement as Honorary Colonel in November 2008.
