Default Evolution of Canadian Military Police from 1940 to 2015.

This silent video depicts the evolution of Canadian Military Police from 1940 to 2015.

The video was specially prepared for the 75th Anniversary of the Military Police Branch of the Canadian Armed Forces, and was played in the background of the 75th Anniversary Gala Dinner, which was held on 12 June 2015 at the Canadian War Museum, Ottawa, Ontario.

The video set an appropriate ambience of honour, respect, and nostalgia for all in attendance.

NOTE: This video has no sound.

Thanks for sharing this Stuart. Lots of nice photos in this, including many vehicles. Its definitely worth a look. Some people might notice a few questionable date stamps, based on vehicles present in the years stated.

Default Good Photos

Hi Stuart

Lots of good to great photos, some of them you really wonder about the story behind the photo. Like the one in with Bob Hope, or the next one with the seven guys at parade rest and the one in the middle at attention. Love the VWs and they might be part of the Date vs Vehicle Age question the VW with the small rear window could be anything 1953-1959 so is that really old for a vehicle being used by the military?

Some of the photos would really be great in an add the caption game, like the M151 Radar Trap, or the propane powered patrol car, or the HUPs under armed guard.

Dose kind of need a sound track to draw/keep attention in this "modern" world of "smart" phones. About halfway through I opened another youtube screen and searched on Canadian Military Band with those playing in another tab went back to watching the 75 Years of Military Police slide show.

Might I suggest this as a play list https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...hNYvbx3uhlxsRS

When I see photo displays like this that feature people, I always sort of wonder how many of the people, or their families stumble across thier photos. There are a couple of guys in the show are there more than once over the years. Then all of a sudden you hit a photo looks familiar in my case it was of a Canadian B25 dated 1994 which I'll have to check my photos because I think I have a photo of the same plane with my HUP parked next to here in the states. I've clipped a good number of photos to use in newsletters and posts.

The dogs got less fearsum from the 1940s to the 1980s, then in 2001 a cat appears.

Again an enjoyable watch. Yes I did watch it from beginning to end.

Cheers Phil

Yes, especially the pre-1950 M38 Jeeps. But it is nice to see some photos that haven't been plastered on the internet a thousand times already.
