On December 11, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Veterans’ Council Chair Guy Mandeville, CD, received the Canadian Forces Logistics Branch Postal Coin for his continuous assistance and participation within the Canadian Forces Postal Service.

Since his retirement, Mandeville continued to be a knowledgeable source of postal history for new clerks and officers who have just joined the Postal Service. Mandeville remains informed on the history of the postal trade and hosts presentations on the subject.

Mandeville is currently assistant curator of the historical display kept within the Canadian Forces Postal Unit at Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Trenton.

In 2012, he was instrumental in assisting the Postal Service to trace their postal history in the War of 1812. The Postal Service became the only non-fighting unit to receive the War of 1812 banner, a banner presented to units of the Canadian Forces tracing military lineage to that point in history.

Mandeville continues to be a welcomed member of the postal family and is often invited to make guest presentations during apprentice and officer courses on military postal history.
