RCMP Constable made honorary wardroom member

RCMP Constable made honorary member of Regina’s wardroom

SLt M.X. Déry, MARPAC PA ~

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Constable Jonathan Treen was made a honorary wardroom member aboard HMCS Regina last week by long-time friend and former colleague, Lieutenant-Commander Andrew Graham, ship’s executive officer.

Constable Treen is a former above water warfare officer who served in the Royal Canadian Navy from 1991 until 2004.

The honorary wardroom membership was the final leg in re-establishing ties to the RCMP. The RCMP Academy, “Depot” Division, is located in the ship’s namesake city and has trained almost all Mounties since 1885.

During the FELEX modernization refit many of Regina’s RCMP artifacts were lost, along with the ship’s link to the RCMP.

That resulted in LCdr Graham reaching out to the local RCMP to re-establish ties.

“That culminated in a Red Serge from Superintendent (Retired) Robert Boyd being donated to the ship,” said Constable Treen.

Robert Boyd is the father of Base Commander Capt(N) Jason Boyd.

“Constable Jonathan Treen also facilitated getting other RCMP artifacts that were lost during the refit,” said LCdr Graham.

With the ship once again flush with Mountie memorabilia and the iconic red-yellow-blue striping in the passageways, the strength of Regina’s connection with its namesake city and the RCMP can be easily seen by any who visits the ship.
