Biografie

Vilhelm Roger Schjelderup was born to Norwegian parents in Smithers, British Columbia in September 1921 and grew up in Courtenay, British Columbia. He was commissioned into the Canadian Army in 1941 and following training was posted to Second Battalion, The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary's). He was wounded in France shortly after the Normandy landings in June 1944 and received the Military Cross. Promoted to Captain he rejoined his Regiment a month later and was wounded again and taken prisoner at the Scheldt Estuary. Leading a group of five POWs he escaped from Germany to Holland and worked with the Dutch Resistance for four months. He eventually reached Allied lines in February 1945. He received a bar to his Military Cross for his work with the Dutch Resistance and the Distinguished Service Order for gallantry during operations on the Leopold Canal. Upon his return to Canada he served with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry as a Company Commander at Camp Shilo in 1946. He did not serve in Korea but instead attended the Royal Military College of Science in England from October 1949 to October 1951 and then went on to Military Staff College from 1951 to November 1954. Promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in 1954 he established the Joint Atomic, Bacteriological and Chemical Defensive School of Warfare at Camp Borden and served as its first Commanding Officer. In 1957 he qualified as a parachutist before taking command of the Second Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry from 12 August 1957 until 10 May 1960. Promoted to Colonel in 1962, Schjelderup again held a variety of staff appointments in the 1960s and 1970's including postings to Manitoba Area Headquarters, Ghana, Canadian Forces Headquarters, 1 Combat Group, Command of CFB, Calgary and as part of the Canadian Defence Liaison Staff (London) in 1973. He passed away 29 September 1974. Colonel Schjeldrup was married to Ida Hundevad in 1949 or 1950. Schjelderup Lake near Courtenay, BC is named after him. After Roger's death, Ida Schjelderup lived in the village of Herstmonceux, East Sussex, England. She was a personal friend of Hamilton and Dorothy Gault, Lady Patricia Ramsay (Princess Patricia), and Countess Mountbatten of Burma (Lady Patricia Brabourne). She was an active member of the United Kingdom Branch of the PPCLI Association.
