Westmount, Quebec – 16 March 2017: The Royal Montreal Regiment will be conducting a change of command ceremony between Lieutenant-Colonel J-F Denis, CD and Lieutenant-Colonel J.L. Shone, CD on Sunday 30 April 2017 at 14h00 (guests are requested to be seated no later than 13h45).
Lieutenant-Colonel Denis is not going far, he will be assuming command of the 34 Signals Regiment shortly after relinquishing command of the RMR, so happily we will be seeing him around the armoury for the foreseeable future.
Lieutenant-Colonel Shone will not need directions to the armoury, having started with the Regiment as a Private and rising in rank to command the RMR from 2002 – 05. He later commanded the CGG from 2005-08, and recently has commanded the 34 Brigade school.
Thank you & good luck to LCol Denis, and ‘welcome home, soldier’ for LCol Shone!
