In Memory of Reg.#16195, Edward S. Bennett


 Reg.#16195, Edward Stewart Bennett

'Friends Not Forgotten'

A note of remembrance was received from S/Sgt. Ed Bennett's son, Derek Bennett.

Derek Bennett says; 'Ed Bennett was my father. He started his policing career with the Newfoundland Constabulary in 1939. After Newfoundland became the tenth province of Canada, the RCMP invited 31 selected members of the Newfoundland Constabulary to join the RCMP as transferred members.

Ed Bennett was invited to join the RCMP by the Chief of Police on May 4, 1950 and on May 5, 1950 he accepted! Dad was assigned Reg.#16195 by the RCMP.

He went through initial training and resumed his post as the RCMP Constable in Botwood, NL rising through the ranks as Constable in charge of Botwood Detachment.

Dad was later transferred to 'K' Division where he remained until his death in 1972.

*Our thanks go to Dereck Bennett for this note about his Dad and for the photo.
