ZP1995 Andrew Osland, b. 1919, joined Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) in Winnipeg in 1937. He deployed for overseas service, but was struck off strength in 1940 to attend officer training school. He became a Lieutenant in 1943, and assumed command of a platoon of PPCLI in 1946. He was a Captain by 1953, and in 1956 or 1957 transferred to the Canadian Guards. By 1960 he was a Major, stationed at Western Command headquarters, with responsibility for liaising with units of the Canadian Rangers in the northern Territories and Pacific coast. Early in his military career, he became actively involved in the sport of boxing. He qualified as a judge and referee, and was manager of the PPCLI boxing team. He was the first President of the Canadian Amateur Boxing Association. He died in Edmonton in 1979.
