ex coelis Proud to be Canadian

August 12, 2003

LCol Fraser Eadie

It is a sad day for the Regiment and the Airborne Brotherhood. LCol Fraser Eadie, CO of 1 Can Para and Colonel of the Canadian Airborne Regiment, passed away on Sunday. All of us knew him and had the greatest respect for him. The world is a lesser place without him and he will be missed.

The funeral will be held at St Jude's Church in Oakville, ON on Fri 15th Aug at 1430 hrs. Anyone wishing to attend, please contact Ian Douglas, President of CAFA at since the capacity of the church could be a problem. As more information becomes available, I will post it here.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family of a real paratrooper and a true AIRBORNE soldier. God bless you all. Just a note, on a parade in Pet in 92 when he was the Honorary reviewing officer for one of our Regimental parades, he refused to inspect the band that was on parade with us, as the other officers at the time were going to do, because; as he stated to them" I only inspect fighting soldiers". He then turned and headed back to the podium. We will never see real fighting officers like that ever again. We were all lucky just to be in his presence a time or two. AIRBORNE!
