An ever-expanding postcard blog

Royal Canadian Mounted Police

on January 12, 2014

postcards1_2This card exhibiting some of Canada’s finest scenery (and this poor model who seems to have the unfortunate luck of having a postcard-photographer for a friend!) comes from Ramona, who has chosen this card for its contrast to Guernsey scenery – definitely true! This guy here is a member of the Royal Canadian Mountain Police who are both a federal and national police service. The service itself dates back to 1920 and the uniform dates to the days when they really were all mounted, but for the most part, horses are now just ceremonial. Very cool card.
