  • Notes 
    • In the last newsletter there was reference to one George Buchanan Moffat who was an original member of the NWMP. A plea was sent for Canadian readers to send more info about GBM. Just in case he has a spot in your database, I am sending the info that was forwarded to me by the RCMP Historical Office. This is what I sent to Mrs. Crammond. IF you have any info about GBM, please let me know. One of my gt gt uncles was a George Moffat born Dec 27, 1854, at Smailholm, Rox, Scotland, but I doubt if he was the police officer.

      Dear Hazel,
      Perhaps you and Mr. Geoffrey Woods and other readers of the Clan Moffat newsletter will be interested in the following letter that I received from the RCMP Historical Office. The letter is dated June 6, 2003.

      "Dear Mrs. Doidge:
      I am replying to your request for information on George Buchanan Moffat, a member of the NWMP.

      After a search of our indexes, I have discovered that George Buchanan Moffat (regimental number 050) served as Inspector in the NWMP. He initially engaged June 17, 1878, and re-engaged as Inspector Sept, 1883 after he left the force in 1881. He served at Fort Walsh, Prince Albert and Maple Creek ( all in what is now Saskatchewan). He was serving at Prince Albert during the 1885 rebellion. He was promoted to Superintendent November 1, 1890. Unfortunately, the only information I have on his birth is the year- 1854. He retired to pension Feb. 28, 1903, and died July 4, 1950 at the age of 95." [1]
