The Captain P.C. Neil Building: Wolseley Barracks ~ London, ON

Captain Proctor Clifford Neil Building: London, Ontario

A new $17.5 million building at Wolseley Barracks in London, Ontario was named in honour of Captain P.C. Neil on May 10, 2006 for his actions in 1945:

Under heavy fire in a minefield, Captain Neil retrieved 51 stranded tanks. He was awarded the Military Cross.

Brigadier General Guy Thibault (shown in the above photo cutting the chain) officially opened the new building. It serves as a maintenance and support facility for the base.

A parade and dinner celebration were also held to honour the accomplishments of Captain Neil and commemorate the grand opening of the new facility. The London Garrison Units stated that Captain Neil's dedication to Canada serves as an example for all Canadian Forces members today, and they are proud to name the new logistics building in his honour.

Captain Neil's uniforms and medals (including his Military Cross Award), plus a variety of World War II artifacts brought home by Captain Neil were donated by his family to the Barracks for display.

As a further tribute to Captain Neil, The London Free Press published an article about his accomplishments and the May 10, 2006 building dedication.
