An Educational, Historical, Cultural and Culinary Experience
The CMPA is pleased to announce it's support for a one-week historical and cultural tour in southern Italy from 12–19 May 2024. This tour has been tailored for members of the military police family (serving and veterans).
[Note: The tour has recently been changed from the original June dates to May instead in order to better facilitate key tour events]
2024 marks the 80th anniversary of the Battle of the Liri Valley in which the 1st Canadian Corps—supported by several units of the Canadian Provost Corps (CProC)—helped break through the tough German defences and set the stage for the subsequent Allied advance on Rome. This tour will include visits to several battlefield sites in the Liri Valley, two Canadian war cemeteries where fallen members of the CProC are buried, and a number of other cultural and historical points of interest. A special ceremony and plaque unveiling is also being planned to honour Captain Tony Scotti and the men of No. 5 Provost Company (CProC) for their heroic actions in saving Italian girls from being sexually assaulted and brutalized.
The tour package includes 7 nights hotel accommodation, 7 breakfasts, 7 lunches, 2 receptions, 4 dinners, daily guided bus tours, transportation from and to Rome airport, entry fees to specific locations, beverages, tips and taxes. Air travel bookings to and from Rome, and associated insurance costs, are an individual responsibility.
