Langley, BC – Thousands of RCMP officers from around Canada, along with colleagues from police, fire and sheriff departments throughout BC, Washington and Australia paid their last respects to a fallen comrade at an RCMP regimental funeral in Langley on Tuesday, November 20.  Cst. Adrian Oliver was killed in a vehicle accident while on-duty in Surrey, November 12.

The RCMP E. Division Pipe Band, under Pipe Major Hugh Peden and and Drum Major Rob Smith led the procession into the Langley Events Centre. Both PipeMajor Peden and bandsman and active RCMP officer Frank Townsley provided pipe solos during the ceremony. The Vancouver Police Pipe Band, Delta Police Pipe Band and the Seattle Police Pipe Band also participated in the ceremony honouring Cst. Oliver’s life.

We were honoured to play a part in this solemn occasion and felt immense pride to be the pipe band representing the national police force of Canada.
