"Capt. Kilgour has been employed as assistant to the ADOS of Army Tps Area,
and as vehicle provision officer on the staff of DDOS First Canadian Army.
He has ably assisted ADOS Army Tps Area in administering the most difficult fmn
in the Army, from an Ord services point of view, and in spite of the most
formidable tpt and sup difficulties, the fmn was well maintained with Ord
stores, due largely to Capt. Kilgour's untiring efforts, initiative, and
devotion to duty.
As vehicle provision officer in the DDOS Brach of HQ First Canadian Army,
complete and accurate information as to vehicle deficiencies and the sup
position has been available to the staff at all times. His sound judgment,
careful planning and for-thought have enabled the holdings of the Army Vehicle
Park to be capable of meeting any operational demand made on them.
The excellent way in which Capt. Kilgour has performed his duties with
exceptional efficiency, has largely been the reason for the lack of any serious
vehicle provision problem in the Army during ops."
