return to Banff Commanding Officers
LCol Hodgson Goodfellow, MBE, CD
GOODFELLOW, Hodgson, Captain - Member, Order of the British Empire - RCEME - awarded as per Canada Gazette dated 15 December 1945 and CARO/6276 dated 18 December 1945.
Captain Goodfellow as the sole officer on strength and Commanding Officer of 1 Canadian Engineer Equipment Workshop has exercised devotion to duty, initiative and drive of a degree and nature greatly exceeding that which might be normally expected. He has maintained a most efficient organization and instilled in those under his command an esprit de corps which is outstanding. His efforts in support of the operations of the Royal Canadian Engineers have undoubtedly been responsible for getting back into their service, at crucial stages in the campaign, much valuable equipment which might otherwise have been unavailable to them.
