Douglas GUNTER, Army Officer: 1921-2005
Artillery officer who experienced savage fighting in the liberation of Europe was years later lauded as a 'gallant base commander' who played host to the Royal Family
By Buzz BOURDON, Thursday, April 14, 2005, Page S9
Special to The Globe and Mail
Ottawa -- Colonel Douglas GUNTER loved organizing things, so when National Defence Headquarters told him in 1972 to expect a Royal visit to Canadian Forces Base Shilo, he found himself in his element. For three months, he was everywhere, planning, inspecting and double-checking everything. He resolved that Shilo, the home station of the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery, would be in tip-top shape for a visit to Manitoba by the Queen, Prince Philip, the Prince of Wales and Princess Anne.
Even his own family was involved. A possible rail strike meant they might have to be evicted to house the Royal Family. "When I told them that we might be moving out to make room for royalty, the children thought that would be exciting, while my wife, with her Irish heritage, was less enthusiastic," Mr. GUNTER wrote in a 1993 family memoir.
His daughter, Anne BRIGHAM, who was 10 at the time, recalled the havoc. "German shepherds were brought in to sniff for bombs. My mother's silver tea service was replaced by 'something better.' She was offended!"
The family was instructed on etiquette, she said. "I had to curtsey to the Queen, Prince Philip, Charles and Anne; my brother had to bow. My mother was a good girl and did what she was told for my father's sake."
Finally, the big day arrived on July 13, 1970. Father and daughter made a final tour of the base at 9 a.m. to see that everything was ready. Then the weather, the one thing beyond Mr. GUNTER's control, went haywire. Appalled, he could only watch in horror as the clouds unleashed lightning, thunder and pelting rain on the royal enclosure. "Vicious rains were soon blowing chairs, bunting and children horizontally across the prairie," he wrote.
In due course, the Royal Family arrived and took their places on a reviewing stand to watch paratroopers from the Canadian Airborne Regiment make a free-fall parachute jump. Other soldiers then demonstrated rappelling by sliding down ropes from a hovering helicopter. That's when the spit hit the fan. Unexpectedly, backwash from the helicopter struck with a prolonged blast of air. Hats went flying and soldiers arrived at a dead run to steady the dangerously teetering structure.
A young Princess Anne managed "to hang on to her hat while her lime-green mini-skirt was flying in all directions. The ever-alert members of the media rushed with their cameras to the front of the stand to capture the royal thigh on film," wrote Mr. GUNTER.
Reacting quickly, he shielded her with his umbrella, earning him transatlantic kudos as "the gallant base commander, protecting the modesty of the young princess."
"Not since the days of Sir Walter Raleigh 400 years ago has such gallantry been seen," one newspaper reported.
Doug GUNTER had joined the army in 1939 and attended the University of New Brunswick. He was posted to 12 Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. He landed in Normandy shortly after D-Day in 1944 and fought his way across France, Belgium, the Netherlands and into Germany.
In February of 1945, he took part in a major operation to clear the west bank of the Rhine River for the drive into Germany. The attack opened with 1,200 guns in the biggest artillery barrage of the war. "My guns started firing high explosive at 0400 hours the continual flashes of gunfire meant you could read a paper anywhere," he wrote. "We continued firing until 1600 hours."
Retired Major-General Reg WEEKS of Ottawa first met Doug GUNTER during the autumn of 1944. Operating about 150 metres behind the fighting, Mr. GUNTER was acting as a forward observation officer, recording the fall and effect of artillery and calling in corrections amid the noise and confusion. A wrong move could mean untold casualties by friendly fire.
"I never knew him to make a mistake in bringing down artillery fire in the right place and the right time," said Mr. WEEKS.
Those desperate months remained with Mr. GUNTER for the rest of his life. "Our gun positions were usually littered with the purple, bloated bodies of horses, cows, pigs and enemy soldiers."
He never did become accustomed to the discovery of body parts. "I remember doing a reconnaissance for a gun position near a Dutch farm house. I discovered a teenaged girl and started to question her when artillery shells started to fall. We both dove for shelter in different areas. When the shelling stopped, I found [her] decapitated body in the farm yard. That I found very disturbing."
After the war, Mr. GUNTER transferred to the regular army, moving his#17 times before he retired in 1974 as director of artillery. He served in Canada, Korea, Germany, Britain and Cyprus.
Mr. GUNTER spent the next 10 years as the executive director of the Canadian Figure Skating Association.
Douglas Hayward GUNTER was born on March 22, 1921, in Saint John, New Brunswick He died of cancer on March 4, 2005, in Ottawa. He was 83. He leaves his wife, Josephine, children Anne and Richard, sister Dorothy and brother Harold.
