RMR Changes Command

Westmount, Quebec – 30 April 2017: In the presence of Colonel Christian Mercier, Commander of 34th Brigade Group, The Royal Montreal Regiment conducted a change of command ceremony between Lieutenant-Colonel J-F Denis and Lieutenant-Colonel J.L. Shone on Sunday 30 April 2017.

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 started with the Regiment as a Private in the 1980’s, 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’ for LCol Shone!
