To All Ranks
4 Canadian Armoured Division

This is my farewell to my comrades of 4 Canadian Armoured Division.

Thank you, one and all, for your loyal co-operation and support during the tenure of my command. You were magnificent both in battle and out.

Of 4 Canadian Armoured Division it can be truly said: we have fought the good fight with all our might.

Other battles are ahead. For some it will be against the Japanese. For others it will be the battle to earn a living. Fight these battles as well as you fought for me, and you cannot possible lose.

Wherever you are, whatever you may be doing, may good luck be your shadow.

Holland, June 1945
