Last Post Fund extends sincere congratulations to Major-General Edward Fitch (Retired) on his recent appointment as Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel of the 4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group (4CRPG), a significant volunteer assignment.
Among the numerous accomplishments that have distinguished his military career, HLCol Fitch was instrumental in extending the 4th Canadian Rangers Patrol Group from British Columbia into Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba in the late 1990s through the early 2000s while he was Commander of Land Forces Western Area (now the 3rd Canadian Division).
The Canadian Rangers are a part of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Reserves working in remote, isolated and coastal regions of Canada. They act as the eyes and ears of the remote areas they cover, and provide an essential support to CAF national security and public safety operations within Canada. Their motto is ‘Vigilans,’ meaning ‘The Watchers.’
