39 Service Battalion has the pleasure to host two museums celebrating the history and traditions of Combat Service Support in British Columbia.
The HCol Larry Watkins, OMM, CD Museum is located in the Col N.C. Sherman Armoury in Richmond B.C.; and the LGen E.C. Ashton Armoury Museum is located in Saanich B.C. Both Museums are supported by private donations and publicly through the Directorate of History and Heritage (DHH).
The HCol Larry Watkins, OMM, CD Museum due to its location as the Regiment Headquarters of 39 Service Battalion, carries the traditions and history of 39 Service Battalion, 12 Service Battalion and the CSS predecessor Army Corps on the mainland of B.C.
The LGen E.C. Ashton Armoury Museum was established in 1994 to maintain, honour and promote the histories of our local Communications (Signals), Logistics, Medical and Military Police Units, their Canadian Forces Branches and predecessor Army Corps. They carry the traditions and history of 11 Service Coy – 39 Service Battalion, 11 Service Battalion and the CSS predecessor Army Corps on Vancouver Island of B.C.
