1 September / Septembre 2012 Vol. 46, No. 9 Korean War Vet Receives Canadian Peacekeeper Medal Un vétéran de la guerre de Corée reçoit la médaille canadienne du maintien de la paix Article by: Lt(N) Ron Clancy, 22 Wing Naval Liaison Officer. Photo submitted Some things are better received late rather than never and that was the case for Leading Seaman Roderick Morrison. Mr. Morrison, who retired from the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) long before the Canadian Peacekeeper Medal was established, was presented with his medal by 22 Wing Commander Colonel Conrad Namiesniowski in a surprise ceremony before friends and family at his residence on Lake Nipissing Friday, July 27th, 2012. Mr. Morrison had been unable to attend the wing’s Honours & Awards ceremony in the spring and had requested that the medal simply be forwarded to him by mail. However, Wing Chief Warrant Officer’s Assistant Sergeant. David Ellery did not feel that that solution would properly honour a retired veteran and contacted Morrison’s wife, Catherine, to coordinate a presentation. Catherine Morrison, whose own RCAF uniform from1943 is proudly displayed in 22 Wing’s Museum, suggested an ambush to coincide with her husband’s 78th birthday celebration. A veteran of the Korean War, LS Morrison (ret’d) was awarded the Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medal in recognition of his contributions while serving with the United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission (UNCMAC) onboard HMCS Haida from August 17th,1953 to November 17th,1954. HMCS Haida served in the RCN from 1943-1963 and today is owned and operated by Parks Canada as a museum ship in Hamilton Harbour since August 30, 2003, sixty years after her commissioning.
