Westmount, Quebec – 05 December 2017: In a short ceremony held in the Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess after the RMR’s battalion review on 12 November 2017, Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel Colin Robinson presented the mess with a silver tray donated by Captain (retired) Hamilton Slessor. The silver tray had originally been given to his father as a wedding present by the RMR NCO’s in 1937, when Lieutenant-Colonel Eric Slessor was the Commanding Officer. Chief Warrant Officer David Cochrane, the Regimental Sergeant-Major of the RMR was pleased to accept the donation and display it in the new trophy case the mess recently acquired.
