    We regret to advise the death of John "Jock" Inglis of Winnipeg MB on 20 August 2006 at the age of 86 years.

    Jock was a Royal Canadian Engineer veteran of the Second World War. He enlisted in September 1939 and was assigned to the 12th Field Company and left for England in January 1940. He was later transferred to the 31st Field Company and served in Northwest Europe. Jock married in England and, after returning to Canada in 1945, he served another six years in the 6th Field Engineer Regiment in Winnipeg.

    In Winnipeg, Jock worked as a printer and publisher until illness forced him to retire in 1968. He was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Winnipeg No. 1 Branch and was its oldest living member. His service with the legion covered 50 years, including 29 years on the executive and two terms as President. He became a Life Member in 1972 and was awarded the Legion Meritorious Service Medal in 1981.

    Cremation has taken place. A memorial service was held at St. Saviour's Anglican Church on 24 August 2006. A private family interment followed in Green Acres Cemetery. In Jock's memory donations may be made to the Branch 1 Sick Visiting Fund. {dcJan20wrd} [zpp]
