William H.A. Willbond MSM, CD


We’ve now said farewell to our old PPCLI, RSM.
Ed was firm fair and friendly to all of his men.
Just a boy soldier back in World War two.
Ed joined up, for the Korean War too.

He was a role model, and he spoke from the heart.
Young soldiers soon learned the RSM stood apart.
He will be missed by his family and friends:
He fought the good fight right through to the end.

From the Regimental Roll Call his name is now gone.
Ed is gone to the Mess with his best battle dress on.
He will meet again with his comrades who went on before.
This great Canadian Soldier who served in peace and in war.
